I am helping my step-mother sell her flat in Benllech. Will the conveyancer arrange the energy assessment or do I organise this?
After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates became a compulsory element of selling a house. An energy performance certificate must be commissioned prior to the property being put on the market. It is not something that conveyancers normally organise. Where you are instructing a Benllech conveyancing lawyer they might help arrange EPC’s given their relationships with long established local assessors
We had appointed solicitors based in Benllech on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate charge for dealing with the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Kent Reliance?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Kent Reliance but by your Benllech conveyancer. Numerous firms on the Kent Reliance panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Benllech. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Principality?
Your original mortgage agreement with Principality will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Principality directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Principality conveyancing panel firm.

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
