Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Toddington

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Lloyds Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Toddington?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I am purchasing a garden apartment in Toddington. Conveyancing solicitor has been waiting for, from the vendor, building insurance paperwork. This afternoon I was informed that the vendor needs to send the insurance documents for the flat above as well. Why does my solicitor want to see the insurance for the flat above? Is it strictly required? We have been in hold for the last fortnight…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Toddington to find Conveyancing in Toddington in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the freeholder insuring the whole premises - which is clearly better. Do clarify with your conveyancer but it would seem that your conveyancer is seeking to establish that the whole building is insured.
