I am assisting my mother sell her house in Tibshelf. Will the solicitor arrange the energy performance certificate or it is for me to see to?
After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments was kept a mandatory component of moving house.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Tibshelf agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Tibshelf. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Barclays?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Tibshelf conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancer is on the Barclays approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many home buyers will apply for a home loan with Barclays and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to move forward with the conveyancing in Tibshelf.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Tibshelf I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Tibshelf for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months 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 existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I have just started marketing my garden flat in Tibshelf. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just had a yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you clear the service charge as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Tibshelf - Examples of Queries Prior to buying
Generally speaking the cost for major works tend not to be built into the service charges, albeit that a few managing agents in Tibshelf obliged leasehold owners to pay into a sinking fund and this is used to offset against major repairs or maintenance. Who takes charge for maintaining and repairing the building? Plenty Tibshelf leasehold flats will be liable to pay a service charge for maintenance of the building levied by the freeholder. Where you buy the property you will have to meet this charge, normally periodically during the year. This can be anything from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large communal grounds. There will also be a ground rent to be met annual, this is usually not a large figure, say approximately £25-£75 but you need to check as sometimes it can be many hundreds of pounds.
