I am hoping to complete my purchase in Whitton next Monday. My property lawyer now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the lender. What does the insurance need to cover?
Any lawyer 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 conditions. These requirements are not specific to conveyancing in Whitton.
Finally the sale completed on my house in Whitton last October yet the purchaser is telephoning me to moan that their lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?
Following your disposal your solicitor should send the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion steps specific conveyancing in Whitton.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Whitton I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Whitton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
