Recently asked questions about conveyancing in New Romney

We have rather assertive vendors who has recommended a preliminary contract with a down payment two thousand pounds. Are such contracts promoted for New Romney conveyancing transactions?

There are two main concerns with executing a lock out contract (also referred to as a shut-out contract) is that it diverts attention away from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it may turn out to be a hindrance. It is not strongly advocated by New Romney conveyancing solicitors as a result. The other main negative is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is very unlikely to be granted injunctive relief to stop the owner disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in limited circumstances, the extra payment of penalties.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Co-operative are being problematic. The New Romney solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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