The owners have rather assertive vendors who has recommended a preliminary contract with a payment 6,000. Are such arrangements appropriate for Brighouse and Rastrick conveyancing transactions?

This form of contract is unusual in Brighouse and Rastrick, conveyancers are often found to veer clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Secondly, there is no guarantee that just because the proprietor has entered into an exclusivity agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the contract if they receive a big enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged party with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not amount to the financial upside that your seller may secure by reneging on the agreement, no matter how morally shameful it undoubtedly is.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Coventry BS are being a right pain. The Brighouse and Rastrick solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have just started marketing my garden flat in Brighouse and Rastrick. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you clear the service charge as normal because all rents and service payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
