I am assisting my niece sell her flat in Long Eaton. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange the energy assessment or it is for the owner to see to?
Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments remained a compulsory element of selling a house. An EPC needs to be commissioned before the property is advertised. It is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Long Eaton conveyancing lawyer they may be willing to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with long established local accredited person
We previously selected conveyancing lawyers based in Long Eaton on the Aldermore solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further charge for handling the Aldermore mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Aldermore?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor may levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Aldermore but by your Long Eaton solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Aldermore panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Long Eaton is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Long Eaton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Long Eaton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Long Eaton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Long Eaton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a residence in Monmouth but live in Long Eaton. My solicitor (based 250 miles awayhas requested that I sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Long Eaton to witness this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are based in Long Eaton
