Can you help - my lawyer says that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Highcliffe conveyancing?

The appropriate level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

I can not work out if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Highcliffe building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Highcliffe conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they will not lend based on their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Your property lawyer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Leeds Building Society are being a right pain. The Highcliffe solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Leeds Building Society are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society 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.
