My solicitor has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Beaworthy conveyancing?

The right level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Beaworthy bank branch on various occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Beaworthy conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

Your solicitor has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Beaworthy. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £150. A few days later, the lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Kent Reliance panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I own a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Beaworthy. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Beaworthy and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Beaworthy is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beaworthy may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My husband and I are one month into a leasehold purchase having been recommend to conveyancers by the selling agent to execute conveyancing in Beaworthy. I am am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

They would need to be really poor in order to consider diss instructing them. Has your mortgage offer been issued? In the event that it has you must inform them of the replacement lawyer and have the loan are issued to the new lawyers. The solicitor ideally should be on the lenders approved list to avoid added expenses and complications. That should be your first question of the new conveyancers.
