All was ready to move into my new home in Killamarsh next Friday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the bank. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?
Any lawyer on acting for mortgage companies 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 UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These obligations are not specific to conveyancing in Killamarsh.
My wife and I buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Killamarsh. We would like to an extension at the rear at the house.Will legal work on the property include checks to see if these alterations are prohibited?
Your conveyancer will review the registered title as conveyancing in Killamarsh can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain changes or need the consent of another owner. Some extensions require local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
I happen to be the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Killamarsh. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is principally there to identify subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
We were going to get a AIP from Co-operative this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Killamarsh solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Killamarsh solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Killamarsh. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

I have been advised by a number of property agents in Killamarsh to choose a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your site ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
