I am buying a ground floor flat in Frognal. Conveyancing solicitor is awaiting, from the seller, building insurance paperwork. I was told today I was advised that the vendor must forward the insurance paperwork for the flat above as well. Why would my conveyancer need to see the insurance for the flat above? Is it really required? We have been stalled for the last month…
It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Frognal to discover Conveyancing in Frognal in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the entire property - which is definitely better. You should contact your lawyer but it would appear that your solicitor is seeking to establish that the entire building is insured. Insuring your apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be rebuilt for lack of insurance cover.
