Please help - my lawyer says that absentee landlord insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Parsons Green conveyancing?
The appropriate level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Parsons Green bank branch on various occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Parsons Green conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
The lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
