I am assisting my niece sell her house in Ripponden. Will the conveyancer arrange the EPC or it is for me to see to?

Following the abolition of Home Packs, EPC’s was left as a compulsory part of moving property. An EPC should be to hand in advance of the property being advertised.

We previously instructed conveyancers based in Ripponden on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further fee for the legal aspects of the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Clydesdale?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Clydesdale but by your Ripponden conveyancer. Some firms on the Clydesdale panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.

How can we know in advance if a Ripponden conveyancing solicitor on the Bank of Ireland panel is any good?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Ripponden.

How does conveyancing in Ripponden differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Ripponden come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because house builders in Ripponden typically purchase the site, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Ripponden or who has acted in the same development.
