Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Leeds Building Society. South Ruislip conveyancing practitioners have been instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Leeds Building Society?

It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being difficult. The South Ruislip solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Bank of Ireland are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland 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 South Ruislip differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in South Ruislip contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built.

Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the agent has warned us that the owners will only proceed if we use the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in South Ruislip

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Contact the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your preferred South Ruislip conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.
