I am hoping to move into my new home in Great Missenden next Monday. My conveyancer now wants me to supply her with evidence 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 risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

It is is a decade since I acquired my property in Great Missenden. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I can't find the title documents. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be with the mortgage company or they may be archived with the lawyers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers.

There is not much else in Great Missenden suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you.
