I am helping my niece sell her property in Crediton. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange an EPC or should I organise this?

After the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments was kept a required element of moving house. An energy assessment should be to hand prior to the property being advertised.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Crediton. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender TSB be concerned?

As your lender is TSB your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The CML Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to TSB where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Crediton.

I recently had an offer agreed on a house in Crediton. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £150. Soon after, the conveyancer contacted me to say that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Kent Reliance panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Have purchased a a detached house in Crediton , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my title? My Crediton conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my name is recorded.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Crediton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected once the buyer is living at the property so registration formalities is not typically primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
