My conveyancer has informed me that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Bartley Green conveyancing?
The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Bartley Green conveyancing practitioners are chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Yorkshire BS?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Yorkshire BS done the valuation? Have you advised Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
We expect to receive a AIP from Skipton this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Bartley Green solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Bartley Green solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Bartley Green. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
