My apartment in Ellesmere Port is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does the solicitor need to be required to be on the UBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the UBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently at the moment.

I am assisting my aunt sell her property in Ellesmere Port. Does the solicitor arrange an EPC or it is for the owner to coordinate?

After the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments remained a required component of selling a property. An EPC should be to hand before the property is placed on the market. It is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers normally organise. If you are using a Ellesmere Port conveyancing solicitor they may help arrange EPC’s given their contacts with reputable local assessors

There are anumerous of properties in Ellesmere Port which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Ellesmere Port should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Ellesmere Port building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Ellesmere Port conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your lawyer has to comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Ellesmere Port and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Ellesmere Port conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Ellesmere Port. We have lived in Ellesmere Port for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Ellesmere Port I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ellesmere Port in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Should I be concerned that brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Ellesmere Port conveyancing company?

On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are free to appoint your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that most mortgage providers have an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
