I am hoping to move into my new home in Binfield next Tuesday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the mortgage company. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?
Any lawyer on acting for banks would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in Binfield.
What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Binfield
There are many recorded licenced Conveyancers in Binfield and Solicitor firms in Binfield to choose from We would stress that the two are supervised by regulatory bodies with both specialising in the legal work in the home buying process. Both can handle associated property related work such as remortgage conveyancing, enfranchisement and transfer of equity conveyancing.
is it true that all Binfield solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. Many banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the organisation would be governed by the CLC.
I currently have a mortgage with Bank of Ireland for my property in Binfield. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Bank of Ireland?
You must advise Bank of Ireland before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Bank of Ireland’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Bank of Ireland directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel lawyer.

My wife and I own a renovated Edwardian house in Binfield. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Nottingham Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Nottingham Building Society to clarify?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Binfield and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
I am Googling for Binfield conveyancing quotes online. Can I be sure that all the Binfield firms that are identified on your website are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel?
The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices listed on our site have assured us via an online form that they are on the bank panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the bank panel. To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Binfield firm being on the lender conveyancing panel is incorrect.
