My conveyancer has informed me that chancel insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Dingle?
The right level of chancel indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Santander and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Dingle building society branch on a couple of occasions and was informed it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Dingle conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank panel, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
After much negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Dingle. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £150. A couple of days later, the solicitor contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Skipton panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
