My lawyer has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Burgess Hill?
The appropriate level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Barclays and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Coventry BS. Burgess Hill conveyancing solicitors were appointed. How long does it take for Coventry BS to send the offer to the conveyancer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Coventry BS done the valuation? Have you advised Coventry BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
My offer was accepted on an apartment in Burgess Hill on 31/5/2019, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Leeds Building Society and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Burgess Hill took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
