I am assisting my sister sell her flat in Upper Tooting. Does the conveyancer order an energy performance certificate or it is for the seller to see to?
After the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments became a required part of moving house. An EPC should be commissioned before the property is advertised. It is not as aspect of the sale process that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Upper Tooting conveyancing practitioner they may be able to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with long established local assessors
I can not work out if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Upper Tooting bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Upper Tooting conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
Your property lawyer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, HSBC are being problematic. The Upper Tooting solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but HSBC are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that HSBC have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why HSBC may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have been advised by a few estate agents in Upper Tooting to choose a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to recommend your site over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?
