Due to move into my new home in South Woodford next Friday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the bank. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?
All property lawyers on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook instructions. These obligations are not specific to conveyancing in South Woodford.
Is there a search tool that I can utilise to find out if the solicitor handling my conveyancing in South Woodford is on the bank’sapproved panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Norwich and Peterborough Building Society thus paying £187.00 plus VAT in another set of legal costs.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Leeds Building Society. South Woodford conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. How long does it take for Leeds Building Society to send the offer to the conveyancer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Leeds Building Society conducted the valuation? Have you advised Leeds Building Society as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in South Woodford. I have a mortgage offer with Co-operative. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
I am buying a property and the solicitor has raised the issue of Chancel Repair for which the house may be obligated to pay because it falls into the area of such a church. She has recommended insurance. Is this really necessary for conveyancing in South Woodford

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one close by in South Woodford I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in South Woodford suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
