I am being told by my solicitor that missing deeds insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Yatton?
The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer may charge a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Yorkshire BS but by your Yatton lawyer. Some firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.
