I am being advised by my conveyancer that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Widnes conveyancing?
The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

Can I be sure that the Widnes conveyancing solicitor on the Barclays panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Widnes getting recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Widnes?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Widnes. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
How does conveyancing in Widnes differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Widnes contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in Widnes usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Widnes or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Widnes is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Widnes are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Widnes you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Widnes may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
