My purchaser’s mortgage company, HSBC are being difficult. The Melton Mowbray solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but HSBC are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

How does conveyancing in Melton Mowbray differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Melton Mowbray approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Melton Mowbray usually buy the site, 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 Melton Mowbray or who has acted in the same development.
