I am assisting my aunt sell her property in Brynford. Does the conveyancer arrange an energy assessment or it is for the seller to see to?
Following the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments became a required element of selling a property. An EPC must be to hand before the property is advertised. This is not a task that solicitors normally arrange. If you are instructing a Brynford conveyancing lawyer they might be able to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with reputable local energy assessors
I'm the sole recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Brynford. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the flipping of property.
