I am hoping to complete my purchase in Yelverton next Monday. My solicitor now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the lender. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?
All property lawyers 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. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 conditions. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Yelverton.

Just bought a detached house in Yelverton , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Yelverton conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure the registration is dealt with.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Yelverton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any other parties. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Yelverton is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Yelverton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Yelverton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Yelverton may ascertain 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 residence.
