I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Coulsdon. My lender is Chelsea Building Society
Chelsea Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 6/4/2020, the requirements read as follows :
My partner and I are intent on selling our property in Coulsdon and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Coulsdon lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Coulsdon. Having lived in Coulsdon for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
How does conveyancing in Coulsdon differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Coulsdon approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Coulsdon typically acquire the site, 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 Coulsdon or who has acted in the same development.
