Can you help - my lawyer says that lack of right of way insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Emerson Park?

The appropriate level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Emerson Park. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Co-operative are being pedantic. The Emerson Park solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative 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.

Will our lawyer be making enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Emerson Park.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Emerson Park. Plenty of people will acquire a house in Emerson Park, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Emerson Park. The conventional set of information supplied to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the vendor to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages resulting from an incorrect response. A buyer’s conveyancers should also carry out an environmental report. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be initiated.

I moved into my home on 6 March and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Emerson Park said it will be registered in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Emerson Park particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Emerson Park registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested parties. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Do I need to be wary by third parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Emerson Park conveyancing firm?

As is the case with many professional services, often suggestions from connections can be very helpful. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders might all recommend lawyers to instruct. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to choose your own lawyer. You need to be aware that many lenders specify a panel list of lawyers you have to use for the lender aspect of your house move.
