Can you help - my lawyer says that breach of easement insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Cullompton?

I'm the sole recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Cullompton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. Some banks would take a sensible view as this provision primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

How does conveyancing in Cullompton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Cullompton come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Cullompton tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Cullompton or who has acted in the same development.
We are one month into a freehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the estate agent to do our conveyancing in Cullompton. I am am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you help me find new solicitors?
A conveyancer would need to be really poor to suggest changing them. Has your loan offer been generated? If so you need to make them aware of the new solicitor and have the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the lenders panel to avoid supplemental costs and delays. So that should be your starting point. The search tool can help you find a bank approved lawyer for your home move in Cullompton
