I am assisting my step-mother sell her house in Dymock. Will the solicitor commission an energy assessment or it is for the owner to coordinate?
Following the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s remained a required element of moving house. An EPC needs to be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not something that law firms normally arrange. If you are instructing a Dymock conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with reputable local energy assessors

I have finally had an offer on a maisonette in Dymock accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Dymock. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Santander going?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Dymock conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Santander conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with searches.
How does conveyancing in Dymock differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Dymock contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Dymock tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Dymock or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Dymock I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dymock suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
