I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years built) in Castelnau. 95% of the properties have already been disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Castelnau?
If you getting a mortgage, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Castelnau conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to swap to an alternative solicitor for your conveyancing in Castelnau.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, TSB are being pedantic. The Castelnau solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB 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.

How does conveyancing in Castelnau differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Castelnau approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Castelnau typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Castelnau or who has acted in the same development.
