I am hoping to move into my new home in Denbighshire next Friday. My conveyancing practitioner now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the lender. What does the insurance need 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 unique to conveyancing in Denbighshire.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Denbighshire is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Denbighshire are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Denbighshire you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Denbighshire may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
What does commercial conveyancing in Denbighshire cover?

Am I better off to go with a Denbighshire conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am buying? I have an old university friend who can execute the legal formalities however they are based a couple of hundredmiles drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Denbighshire conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Denbighshire know how is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and in the main were impressed that must surpass using an unfamiliar Denbighshire conveyancing lawyer just because they are round the corner.
