Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a ground floor flat in Tenterden. Do I receive the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Tenterden?

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being a right pain. The Tenterden solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Bank of Ireland are insisting on 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.

About to purchase maisonette in Tenterden. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Tenterden property lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Tenterden I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Tenterden for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
