Can you help - my lawyer says that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Kirkby conveyancing?

My partner and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Co-operative as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our property in Kirkby. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Kirkby solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Co-operative don't usually appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Kirkby conveyancer having checked that they are on the Principality conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Kirkby postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Principality, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Kirkby.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Kirkby is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Kirkby are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Kirkby you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kirkby may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

My father-in-law has recommend that I appoint his conveyancers in Kirkby. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Kirkby conveyancing lawyer the ideal way to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to get referrals from friends or relatives who have experience in using the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.

I have been advised by many friends to expect six to eight weeks for Kirkby conveyancing to complete.This was four weeks ago. The draft contract was only sent from the vendors conveyancing practitioner a few days ago so now does it countdown?

You should take with a grain of salt any assurance as to expedited completion times. Rather you should enquire about the average timeframe to complete Kirkby conveyancing transactions and whether they are happy to aim towards your proposed completion date for your house move in Kirkby
