All was ready to complete my purchase in Mancot next Thursday. 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 bank. What does the insurance need to cover?
Any lawyer on acting for lenders 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 conditions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in Mancot.
I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Mancot. My lender is Bank of Ireland
Bank of Ireland have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 10/1/2021, the requirements read as follows :
I have been advised by a few estate agents in Mancot to get a quote from a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers rather than another?
We refuse to give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
My step-father has suggested that I use his conveyancers in Mancot. Do I take his advice?
Much as we are happy to recommend a Mancot conveyancing lawyer the ideal way to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to get guidance from friends or family who have previously instructed the firm that you are considering.
Is it possible for you to refer me to a conveyancing practitioner for purchasing a house? Ideally someone in the Mancot area, who will contact me via email - not someone who insists on a letter in the post or fax.
