I am helping my step-mother sell her property in Failsworth. Does the conveyancer order an EPC or do I organise this?

Following the demise of Home Information Packs, EPC’s remained a compulsory element of selling a property. An EPC should be commissioned prior to the property being marketed. This is not something that solicitors ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Failsworth conveyancing solicitor they might be willing to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with long established Failsworth providers

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with RBS. Failsworth conveyancing solicitors have been selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from RBS?

There is no definitive answer here. Have RBS done the valuation? Have you informed RBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the RBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

Will our conveyancer be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Failsworth.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Failsworth. There are those who acquire a house in Failsworth, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their solicitors which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Failsworth. The conventional set of property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the vendor to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser could commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s lawyers may also commission an environmental search. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be initiated.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Failsworth. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Failsworth

    Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

I have just appointed agents to market my basement flat in Failsworth. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all rents and service invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I bought a ground floor flat in Failsworth, conveyancing having been completed October 2003. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent properties in Failsworth with a long lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2092

With just 68 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £9,500 and £11,000 plus costs.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.

I have been recommended a conveyancing solicitor in Failsworth. I I would like to check if they are on the bank's conveyancing panel. Can you or the bank confirm if they are on the panel?
