All was ready to complete my purchase in Woodley next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for mortgage companies 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.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Woodley. Do I receive the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Woodley?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion.

Your solicitor should review the registered title as conveyancing in Woodley will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit categories of changes or need the consent of another owner.

Planning on purchasing a flat in Woodley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Virgin Money 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 Woodley conveyancing practitioner is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
