My solicitor has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Beverley?
The appropriate level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
Is it the case that all Beverley CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Barclays conveyancing list of approved practices?
It is true that some banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their panels.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Beverley. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure 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).
Beverley Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should consider before Purchasing
Where a Beverley lease has no more than eighty years it will impact the marketability of the property. Check with your mortgage company that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term. A short lease means that you will probably need a lease extension at some point and it is worth discovering what this would cost. For most Beverleylease extensions you will be be obliged to have been the owner of the premises for two years in order to be entitled to extend the lease. Best to be warned whether redecorating or some other significant cost is due in the foreseeable future that will be shared by the leasehold owners and may well dramatically impact the level of the service fees or require a one off payment. Most Beverley leasehold flats will have a service charge for maintenance of the block levied by the freeholder. If you acquire the apartment you will have to meet this charge, normally quarterly during the year. This could be anything from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large communal areas. In all probability there will be a ground rent for you to pay yearly, normally this is not a exorbitant sum, say around £25-£75 but you need to check as occasionally it could be prohibitively expensive.
