I am hoping to move into my new home in Madeley next Thursday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the bank. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?
All property lawyers 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 instructions. These obligations are not unique to conveyancing in Madeley.
We are due to move house in June. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Madeley. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across this site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent but this can only take place after the vendors lawyers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. You will need to advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Madeley or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Madeley.
I currently have a mortgage with Nationwide for my property in Madeley. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Nationwide?
You must advise Nationwide prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nationwide will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nationwide directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor.
About to purchase apartment in Madeley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Madeley property lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
Various web forums that I have visited warn that are the main reason for hinderance in Madeley conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
