Conveyancers use Indemnity insurance during conveyancing transactions to insure you from any kind of problems with the property that can not just be fixed quickly, or can’t be fixed at all. Conveyancing indemnity insurance covers the buyer and the mortgage provider in the event of any decrease in value on the property or land as a result of any defect or problems. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ (CML) handbook for conveyancers says: “You must effect an indemnity insurance policy whenever the Lenders’ Handbook identifies that this is an acceptable or required course to us to ensure that the property has a good and marketable title at completion.”
Payments for buying a property
Your chosen conveyancing solicitor will be able to help you towards the initial stages of purchasing – signing the sale contract and exchanging contracts for the property purchase. The buyer will be required to put down some money as a deposit, usually about 5%-15% of the final sale price.
Purchasing comes with a number of extra fees to pay, that includes mortgage lender fees, before the purchase is finalised. In most sales the biggest cost will be SDLT – this is a government tax on property purchases.
The conveyancer fees include Land Registry fees and property searches, plus various different fees that will be included as disbursements within the conveyancers quote. Your conveyancer will add up all these required bills and make you aware of the final cost of moving.
The national average timescale for conveyancing is between 9-10 weeks.
