I have been told by my solicitor that flying freehold insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Arlesey conveyancing?
The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Arlesey conveyancing lawyers are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Kent Reliance?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Kent Reliance completed the survey? Have you advised Kent Reliance as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Arlesey. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Arlesey with the purpose of expediting the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Arlesey can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ representatives. The majority of landlords or managing agents in Arlesey charge for providing management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack can be applied for on or before finding a buyer, thus reducing delays. The average time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most frequent cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Arlesey. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should double-check via your solicitors. A buyer’s lawyer will not be happy to advise their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the remaining number of years is under 80 years. It is therefore important at an early stage that you consider whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should ensure that you are holding the original share certificate. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate can be a time consuming formality and delays many a Arlesey conveyancing transaction. If a duplicate share certificate is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this sooner rather than later. If you have had any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as historic as opposed to unsettled.
