Due to complete my purchase in Delabole next Thursday. My conveyancer now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the bank. What does the insurance need to cover?

I purchased a freehold property in Delabole but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Delabole and has limited impact for conveyancing in Delabole but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be extinguished.

I purchased my apartment on 3 April and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Delabole said it should be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Delabole particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Delabole is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore registration formalities is not usually top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the estate agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's recommended solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Delabole
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your own,trusted Delabole conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures set by senior management.
