Following the demise of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a mandatory element of moving house. An energy performance certificate must be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not something that lawyers ordinarily arrange.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Winsford. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. HSBC have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with HSBC your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The CML Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to HSBC where a lease does not satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Winsford.

Have purchased a a detached house in Winsford , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my title? My Winsford conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are concluded.

As far as conveyancing in Winsford is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Winsford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Winsford come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Winsford typically buy the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Winsford or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Winsford prior to retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor has said that some lenders will refuse to grant a loan on a flying freehold property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Nationwide. If you contact us we can investigate further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Winsford. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Winsford especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Winsford.

I was advised by a number of property agents in Winsford to select a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers rather than another?

We don’t offer any financial incentive for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
