I am acquiring a property without a mortgage in Neston. I have been living for the previous Seventeen years in Neston. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Neston conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are going to dispose of the house at a future date, it could be of interest to your future buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes properties with apparent issues can still reveal detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Neston should be able to give you some sensible advice here.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Neston? Is this really warranted?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Neston conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing your correct address.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are required to check not just the ID of conveyancing clients but also the origin of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may result in your conveyancer cancelling their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your conveyancers are duty bound to notify the appropriate authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
I am helping my niece sell her house in Neston. Does the solicitor arrange an EPC or it is for the owner to see to?
Following the demise of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a mandatory element of selling a property.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Neston. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Co-operative be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Co-operative your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Co-operative. The CML Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Co-operative where a lease does not satisfy these requirements. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Neston.
Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Neston solicitor - who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Neston surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Conveyancers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should figure out the risks in Neston. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual question of the vendor to find out if the property has suffered from flooding.

The buyer’s lawyers should also commission an environmental report. This should reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be initiated.
