I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Virgin Money are being a right pain. The Caddington solicitor who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Virgin Money are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Virgin Money have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Virgin Money have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Virgin Money may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Santander. Is it usual for Santander to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Caddington is approved on their conveyancing panel? Santander have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I am employed by a busy estate agency in Caddington where we see a number of flat sales put at risk due to short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Caddington conveyancing solicitors. Can you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I bought a ground floor flat in Caddington, conveyancing formalities finalised 7 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent flats in Caddington with a long lease are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2088

With just 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £14,300 and £16,400 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an flat in Caddington accepted, the seller does however have a connected purchase. The sellers have offered on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Caddington. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Coventry BS started with Coventry BS?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Caddington conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Coventry BS approved list. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Coventry BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to press on with searches.
