My conveyancer has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Stanley conveyancing?

The right level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who 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 am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Nottingham are being problematic. The Stanley solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Nottingham are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

I purchased a terraced Edwardian property in Stanley. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Britannia. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

I'm buying a new build house in Stanley with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead.
