I am hoping to complete my purchase in Cannock next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What risks does the mortgage company 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 requirements. These obligations are not unique to conveyancing in Cannock.

I am planning on selling our property in Cannock and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A high street Cannock conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Cannock. We have lived in Cannock for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
How and when do I incur stamp duty due for my Cannock property purchase?
