Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a first time buyer of a ground floor flat in Malton. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Malton?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Malton.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Nationwide are being pedantic. The Malton solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Nationwide are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

Co-operative have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a apartment in Malton has been agreed to, now what?

The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (be sure the property lawyers are on the lender’s panel).

The conventional set of property information forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to discover whether the property has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may bring a claim for damages stemming from an misleading answer. A buyer’s conveyancers should also carry out an environmental report. This will reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Malton?
