Due to complete my purchase in Didsbury next Tuesday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the lender. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Didsbury.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is removed from the Virgin Money Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Didsbury?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

We are due to move home in January. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Didsbury. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across this website.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent however this can only take place after the sellers lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. Subsequently you can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Didsbury or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Didsbury.

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

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

UBS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a apartment in Didsbury has been agreed to, what happens next?

Your estate agent will wish to be informed of your solicitor's details (be sure the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Call up UBS or your financial adviser and finalise any relevant forms. UBS will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to arrange a time for the valuation to happen. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight to get a mortgage offer. UBS will send the offer to you and your lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Didsbury.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Didsbury I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Didsbury for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
