Can you help - my lawyer advises that lack of right of way insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Beckton conveyancing?
The appropriate level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Beckton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Beckton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Beckton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beckton may determine 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 premises.
My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Beckton
It is improbable the vendors are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Beckton conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by HQ.

I have subsequently discovered that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are issues purchasing a leasehold house in Beckton. Conveyancing solicitors have are soon to be appointed. Will they explain the issues?
