Government backs property logbooks

Friday, 23 November 2018  |  Admin

The government is likely to push sellers to provide more up front information about their property before it goes on the market to make the homebuying process quicker, cheaper and less stressful.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, which has pledged to fix what it considers to be a 'broken' housing market, confirmed its intentions at a conference yesterday. A panel discussion entitled 'Can you really digitise the homebuying process?' featured at trade association UK Finance's Annual Mortgage Conference, held at Eversheds Sutherland's London office.

The ministry's Matt Prior said that with leasehold properties, for instance, it is not 'unreasonable' to tell prospective buyers how many years are left on a lease and what the service charge is. It is 'ridiculous' that such information is not provided up front, he said.

Throughout the lockdown period many solicitors and conveyancers just couldn’t get the system right to work from home, but out of this Suremove Property Lawyers stood out as the one that could. Pretty much immediately the teams at Suremove had everything in place to work smoothly and reliantly from their home bases.

Is it really 'Business as usual'?

Kelly Fleming discusses working in lock down.

Is is reall 'Business as usual'? I keep hearing this, but I don't believe it!

I think transferring an office of twenty two people to their individual homes for six weeks is far from 'business as usual'.
