I am helping my mother sell her house in Ollerton. Will the conveyancing solicitor commission the energy assessment or do I organise this?
After the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates became a mandatory part of selling a house. An EPC must be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. This is not a task that law firms normally arrange. If you are instructing a Ollerton conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with reputable Ollerton assessors
Is it the case that all Ollerton solicitor practices on the UBS conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Ollerton building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Ollerton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
The solicitor must follow the CML Handbook section two provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Ollerton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? 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. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. 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 Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.
I am attracted to a two apartments in Ollerton both have about forty five years left on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are plenty of short leases in Ollerton. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As the lease shortens the value of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to extend the lease term. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
