Right, so I'm expecting through the lawyers paperwork soon. I've got it from a previous one that fell through so took a look through that. Got a few questions if anyone is happy to answer.
Expected completion date... I don't know? Surely the solicitors should be in a better position to know that than me? 8 weeks seem reasonable? 6? It states that things change, so it's only ever a guesstimate, just put 6 weeks and to hell with it?
Buildings insurance. They want the details of the company etc, but until I have a completion date, then buying insurance seems daft? Or can you get it all in place, and then you let the insurance company know when exchange/completion is meant to be?
They want a steer from you as to when you want/need to complete by.
As for insurance, either give them the name of the current lot (assuming you’ll just move it over) or tell them TBC. You need it in place for exchange and your current insurer will normally cover both properties between exchange and completion before transferring it over to the new one. There was no charge the last time I did this but your mileage will vary.
