We expect to receive a AIP from Aldermore this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Margate solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Aldermore through the process.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Skipton are being pedantic. The Margate solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Skipton are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton 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.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Margate and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Margate lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Margate. We have lived in Margate for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
How does conveyancing in Margate differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Margate approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in Margate tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Margate or who has acted in the same development.
