Property Transfer Insurance
Conveyancing Solicitors use Indemnity insurance during conveyancing transactions to insure you from some sort of problems with the property which can not just be resolved quickly, or can’t be fixed at all. Legal indemnity insurance covers the buyer and the mortgage lender if any loss of value on the property or land as a consequence of any kind of defect or issues. 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 and Deposits when buying a home
The conveyancer can help you through the legal stages of buying – agreeing on the contract and exchanging contracts for the property purchase. The buyer will be required to put down a deposit, usually about 5%-10% of the agreed sale price.
There will be a number of bills to meet, that includes mortgage lender costs, before the transaction is complete. Usually the largest cost will be Stamp Duty – a UK Government tax on home purchases.
There will also be Land Reg fees and property search fees, and various other costs that will be included as disbursements. The conveyancing solicitor will add up all these fees and make you aware of the final cost.
The national average timescale for conveyancing is between 9-10 weeks.

Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county in North West England, with a population of 2.8 million. It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972; and designated a City Region on 1 April 2011. Greater Manchester spans 493 square miles (1,277 km2), which roughly covers the territory of the Greater Manchester Built-up Area, the second most populous urban area in the UK. It is landlocked and borders Cheshire (to the south-west and south), Derbyshire (to the south-east), West Yorkshire (to the north-east), Lancashire (to the north) and Merseyside (to the west). There is a mix of high-density urban areas, suburbs, semi-rural and rural locations in Greater Manchester, but land use is mostly urban — the product of concentric urbanisation and industrialisation which occurred mostly during the 19th century when the region flourished as the global centre of the cotton industry. It has a focused central business district, formed by Manchester city centre and the adjoining parts of Salford and Trafford, but Greater Manchester is also a polycentric county with ten metropolitan districts, each of which has at least one major town centre and outlying suburbs.
The current average value in Greater Manchester in May 2017 is £185,207. This has increased 0.40% from February 2017. Terraced properties sold for a current average value of £123,293 and semi-detached properties valued £188,616. In the past year property prices in Greater Manchester have increased 1.99%. This is according to the current Zoopla estimates.
