On 30 November 2015, the CML removed the reference to part 2 in the buildings insurance requirement section of the Lenders Handbook. The clause in part 1 requires conveyancers to make reasonable enquiries that buildings insurance cover has been arranged for the property no later than completion and to remind the borrower that they must have buildings insurance in accordance with the requirements of the mortgage conditions no later than completion and must maintain such buildings insurance cover throughout the term of the mortgage.

Changes have been agreed between the Law Society and the CML to the standard form of certificate of title to reflect this amendment.
