Every year hundreds of thousands of people think, racking their brains to remember where they left these documents; spending days if not weeks, searching their drawers, lofts, garages, and office filing cabinets looking for the paperwork their conveyancers and solicitors will need to sell their house or flat. Without these documents, the property sale and purchase will be delayed, costs wasted and even not completing at all, not to mention additional stress in an already difficult process.

The purpose of the portal is to make your data available faster. To plug the Tharp in the current conveyancing system in England and Wales which lags so far behind the rest of the world. The latest data from the World Bank shows whilst the UK is ranked 7th best for ease of transacting business”, it is placed 47th in the world for property and conveying transactions, ranked lower than for example Kosovo, Mongolia, and Rwanda.
Because documents are needed to sell and buy. Thats it. It’s compulsory. The frustrations for sellers, buyers, conveyancers and solicitors alike is the ever-increasing frustration caused by missing deeds and documents. Not only does applying for duplicates lead to additional expenses but also crucial delays.
As a property owner, you may ask yourself which documents your conveyancer need when you come to sell your property. You may not realise these documents are essential, but they certainly are. A few examples are:
If a document has been lost and a duplicate cannot be obtained, then you might have to pay for an Indemnity Insurance Policy, which could cost anything up to £850.
Even where duplicates are available these will cost you.
▪ FENSA certificate if you If you lose this certificate, a duplicate will cost you £20..
and log book and the Local Authority will issue a building regulation compliance certificate. These are vital documents which must be passed to the buyer’s solicitor.
▪ NHBC Guarantees – replacement – £50
▪ Guarantees for Damp – typical cost of replacement – £30
▪ FENSA Certificates – eg where you install new windows. Typical cost of replacement – £30
In addition, the installer will supply you with a guarantee, a specification and an insurance policy. All of these documents will be needed by your buyer. FENSA certificates for new windows, gas and electrical certificates, planning permissions and guarantees can all be uploaded
▪ CORGI Certificates – new boiler, the installer will issue an installation certificate – typically carrying a replacement cost – £30
