I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, TSB are being a right pain. The Millwall solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but TSB are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB 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.
How does conveyancing in Millwall differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Millwall come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Millwall usually purchase the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Millwall or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Millwall I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Millwall suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
As co-executor for the estate of my grandmother I am disposing of a house in Swansea but live in Millwall. My conveyancer (based 235 miles awayrequires that I execute a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Millwall to witness and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Millwall based

Got an estimate from a property lawyer for £1000 excluding VAT which is a tad steep considering its so straightforward. Is it possible to find less expensive fees for conveyancing in Millwall?
Considering it’s a sale only, £500 + VAT is likely to be about the lowest for a Millwall solicitor firm.
