I am helping my sister sell her flat in Fairbourne. Does the solicitor order an energy performance certificate or should I organise this?
Following the demise of HIPs, energy assessments was retained a mandatory component of moving property. An energy performance certificate needs to be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. This is not a task that lawyers ordinarily organise. Where you are instructing a Fairbourne conveyancing solicitor they might be willing to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with long established local accredited person
My wife and I purchasing a terrace house in Fairbourne. The intention is to convert the garage to a playroom at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to ascertain if these alterations are permitted?
Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Fairbourne will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Many extensions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

We are intent on selling our property in Fairbourne and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a national conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Fairbourne. Having lived in Fairbourne for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with 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 sickness)
I'm buying my first flat in Fairbourne with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead.
