I would presume covalent bonds in covalent lattices?

(Yes, I'm certain of that.)

What the hell are 'london forces'?
Subcategory of Van der Waals, not covered by specs like WJEC.

(Edit: I should say "spec given by the WJEC exam board" semantically speaking.)

The terms used in the title is extremely confused and self contradictory. A simple molecular compound by definition cannot be a lattice/crystal structure.

London forces are the more appropriate name for what some syllabuses call "van der Waals" (which is too ambiguous and can refer to all intermolecular forces)

The main types of intermolecular forces are London and dipole-dipole (which includes hydrogen bonding, an especially strong intermolecular force).
