I am assisting my mother sell her house in Stoke Newington. Will the solicitor arrange the energy assessment or it is for the owner to see to?

After the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments became a mandatory element of moving property. An energy performance certificate should be to hand before the property is advertised.

I'm in the throws of looking at flats in Stoke Newington and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a solicitor in place at this stage? I am planning to take a mortgage with Yorkshire BS.

It would be advisable to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Kent Reliance are being problematic. The Stoke Newington solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Kent Reliance are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Stoke Newington?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Stoke Newington. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I'm buying my first flat in Stoke Newington with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it may impact my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Stoke Newington I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Stoke Newington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
