Can you help - my lawyer says that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Stanford Le Hope?
The appropriate level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Barclays and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
is it true that all Stanford Le Hope conveyancing solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the UBS approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the SRA. The majority of banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be regulated by the CLC.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Stanford Le Hope is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
We are planning on selling our home in Stanford Le Hope and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land.

We have lived in Stanford Le Hope for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may 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)
