I am helping my mother sell her flat in Didsbury. Will the conveyancer commission the energy assessment or do I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments was left as a mandatory part of selling a property. An EPC must be to hand in advance of the property being marketed. This is not a task that lawyers normally arrange. If you are instructing a Didsbury conveyancing practitioner they may help arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with long established Didsbury energy assessors
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Didsbury. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Didsbury?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Didsbury. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
Co-operative have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a property in Didsbury has been accepted, what are the next steps?
Your property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Telephone Co-operative or your financial adviser and finish off any relevant paperwork. Co-operative will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or owners to arrange a time for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Co-operative will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Didsbury.
The deeds to our house can not be found. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Didsbury 4 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
You no longer need to have the physical original deeds to prove you are the registered proprietor of land or premises, as the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Didsbury is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Didsbury are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Didsbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Didsbury 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 property.
