I am helping my aunt sell her house in Binfield. Does the solicitor order the EPC or do I organise this?
After the abolition of Home Information Packs, EPC’s became a required part of moving property. An energy performance certificate needs to be commissioned in advance of the property being marketed. It is not as aspect of the sale process that lawyers ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Binfield conveyancing lawyer they may be willing to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with long established Binfield assessors
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Binfield conveyancing solicitors were selected. How long does it take for Santander to forward the offer to the conveyancer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Santander completed the survey? Have you advised Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
My partner and I are in the throws of viewing apartments in Binfield and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with Nationwide.
It would be advisable to start your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the EA. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Nationwide, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
Will our lawyer be raising enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Binfield.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Binfield. Plenty of people will purchase a property in Binfield, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Binfield. The standard information sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard question of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser may commence a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect response. The buyer’s lawyers may also conduct an enviro report. This will indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be carried out.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Binfield is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Binfield are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Binfield you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Binfield may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
