I am purchasing residence in Kingsbury. My Conveyancer is not on the mortgage company approved panel. Can I still use my Kingsbury conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You must appoint a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the legal work required when you need a loan to purchase your home. They will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in order. You may instruct a Kingsbury conveyancer of your choice. However, where the solicitor appointed is not on the bank conveyancing panel supplemental charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so if your solicitor has not historically applied for membership they can do so.
Due to complete my purchase in Kingsbury next Tuesday. My conveyancing practitioner now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order 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 UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These obligations are not specific to conveyancing in Kingsbury.
I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Kingsbury prior to instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of home.
