I am being advised by my lawyer that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Kidderminster?

The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, HSBC are being difficult. The Kidderminster solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but HSBC are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that HSBC have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why HSBC may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Kidderminster. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just received a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as usual given that all rents and service charges should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
