I am assisting my mother sell her property in Fallowfield. Does the solicitor commission the energy assessment or should I organise this?
Following the demise of HIPs, energy performance certificates was kept a compulsory component of moving property. An EPC needs to be to hand prior to the property being placed on the market. It is not a task that law firms ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Fallowfield conveyancing solicitor they may be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with reputable local energy assessors
Can you help - my lawyer advises that breach of easement insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Fallowfield conveyancing?
The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Santander and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
We were going to get a DIP from Coventry BS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Fallowfield solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Fallowfield solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.
My partner and I are intent on selling our property in Fallowfield and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Fallowfield. We have lived in Fallowfield for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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)
How does conveyancing in Fallowfield differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Fallowfield contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Fallowfield typically buy the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Fallowfield or who has acted in the same development.

My parents cant seem to find their Fallowfield land registry title on the website. They have a vague recollection sixty years ago when they purchased the house there were complications regarding the address not being recognised in some systems.
Nearly all properties in Fallowfield should show up. Have you attempted a search with simply the postcode. Ordinarily it should disclose all the residences within the postcode. Where registered it will show up with a title number. If they bought 50 years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The property could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title deeds which could be with your parent’s mortgage company.
