Due to complete my purchase in Shoeburyness 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 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 Part 2 instructions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in Shoeburyness.
I am selling our home in Shoeburyness and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Shoeburyness. Having lived in Shoeburyness for six years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Shoeburyness 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my options?
Gone are the days when you need to hold title official documentation to prove you own the land or premises, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

Conveyancing lawyers have are about to be appointed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Shoeburyness ?
