I am hoping to complete my purchase in Ingatestone next Tuesday. 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 mortgage company. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?

All property lawyers 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 specific to conveyancing in Ingatestone.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Given that I am about to spend £400,000 on a garden flat in Ingatestone I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor regarding thehome move ahead of appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer who will be doing your property ownership legalities in Ingatestone.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a case number.

As co-executor for the estate of my grandmother I am selling a house in Swansea but I am based in Ingatestone. My lawyer (based 300 kilometers from mehas requested that I execute a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Ingatestone to witness this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you should not be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Ingatestone based

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Ingatestone. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as usual given that all rents and maintenance charges should be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I purchased a split level flat in Ingatestone, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2004. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar properties in Ingatestone with over 90 years remaining are worth £221,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2092

With just 70 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
