I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Principality are being problematic. The Eccleston solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Principality are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Is it best to appoint a Eccleston conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can handle the legal formalities however her office is 200kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a high street Eccleston conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Eccleston know how is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and in the main were happy that should trump using an unknown Eccleston conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Eccleston based.

What makes a Eccleston lease defective?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Eccleston. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.

You will encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Santander, Bank of Scotland, and Alliance & Leicester all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to pull out.

I am the registered owner of a 1st floor flat in Eccleston, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Eccleston with an extended lease are worth £227,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2095

With 71 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.

My husband and I have recently had an offer accepted on our first home in Eccleston, and are now looking to get solicitors instructed. I have made use of the numerous comparison based websites and the fee estimates are from all over the the UK. Is it critical to have a Eccleston lawyer local to our potential house? We are willing to do all the communicating over email, but I assume at some stage we will be required to visit the solicitor's office to sign contracts?

There is no need to attend the office of your lawyer, they can post any relevant papers to you, which you can sign and send back. Many buyers and sellers choose to instruct a locally based solicitor, but it is not a prerequisite for conveyancing in Eccleston.
