Following the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a compulsory component of moving property.

I am due to move house in May. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Trowbridge. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your website.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from the estate agent but this can only be done once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. After that you will need to inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Trowbridge or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Trowbridge.

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.

Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
