    You're slowly getting there. It's just solicitors earning their money, I'm sure the flying freehold question will be easily answered. It's such a pain trying to buy/sell nowadays isn't it? :rolleyes:

    Annoyingly, the rules on who needs what when change over time, so it may not have been required when you bought, Patsy, unless you bought in very recent years. The reason you are being asked to provide the insurance could be there is a difficulty insuring a property they don't own, until completions, so there could, potentially, be a chicken and egg situation in play?

    Why not stipulate that you will provide the insurance, but the cost to be paid by the buyers? If they say no, you have a choice, but if contracts are signed, and exchanged already, be very careful of the penalties for withdrawal at this stage. They are significant and would, I feel certain, put the cost of the insurance into the shade.

    If, on the other hand, you haven't exchanged contracts (and exchanging is the issue, not signing), you aren't legally bound, but will already be several hundred, if not thousands down in legal and disbursement costs which you would still be liable for.

    Moving isn't for the feint hearted.

    Well, nobody wants to buy a property with uncertainty around whether they can easily access it or not, whereas you already have that uncertainty, because you are already there.

    I just hope the enquiries with the Land Registry aren't costing you more than £80 in solicitor's billed time.

    It could be (and I'm speculating) that they need a longer the policy to be as long as any mortgage the new buyer might be having, or could have on the house - A bit like leaseholding.

    It's all very complicated, but it seems to me you could be better either suggesting the buyer contributes all or part of the cost, orjust get on and pay it. How much is it worth to be rid of all this stress?

    Sometimes quality of life is worth far more than £80 in the bank.

    I appreciate how annoying it can all be. When I moved here, my solicitor of the time told me if I ever bought another house from someone as insane as that vendor, not to call him.

    The longer these things go on, the harder it becomes to give in.

    Cyclists!!! I think they are more obnoxious than ever these days. Had lots of similar things happen lately. Worst thing is they cycle 3 or 4 across and you cannot overtake safely! Waggling about drinking too. They don’t stop a red lights for some reason!? And undertaking! I think they should all be taxed and have a number plate so they too can be reported for dangerous behaviour. They should get fines as well. They never accept blame either. It’s always the car driver at fault.

    On the point of Cyclist WHY is there cyclist tracks at the side of the roads and the cyclist will insist on cycling on the road ??? when there are middle islands for people to stand on for crossing the road which then makes the car drivers have to stop or slow down to avoid an accident ....I mean why have a cyclist track if they not going to use it???

    Not keen on cyclists myself but maybe the side of the road where the cycle lanes are, are full of potholes. We have more potholes than roads here.

    Patsy - I have no challenge on your moral comapss in terms of telling the truth, but the saying "words are cheap" is so true. Some people will say anything to either get out ofa jam.

    I think what you are being asked to sign is an affidavit, which is a statement that can be sworn or affirmed by a solicitor, notary or commissioner for oaths (for a charge) or by an authorised member of court staff. It could then be used, along with witness statements to prove the truthfulness of a certain statement in court.

    Nearly there. Keep going.
