All was ready to move into my new home in Wadebridge next Thursday. 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 mortgage company. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?
Any lawyer on acting for banks 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 Part 2 requirements. These obligations are not specific to conveyancing in Wadebridge.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Wadebridge is more expensive?
The conveyancing fees on a leasehold premises in Wadebridge is frequently higher as compared to a freehold property. This is because there is an amount of supplemental time required in liaising with the landlord and management company to obtain evidence about whether the rent and service fee have been cleared and whether there are any significant expenditure in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

I acquired a ground floor flat in Wadebridge, conveyancing having been completed December 1999. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar properties in Wadebridge with an extended lease are worth £179,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2078
With just 58 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £25,700 and £29,600 plus legals.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

By offering "no completion no fee" Wadebridge conveyancing lawyers are waiving their charges for any work done. We must stress this is NOT an insurance scheme. you will still need to pay for any charges that the property lawyer has incurred on your behalf for example Wadebridge local authority searches
