Some major lenders now make use of the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander.

I have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Biggleswade. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Aldermore?

Your original mortgage agreement with Aldermore will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent 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 Aldermore directly. You need not do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel lawyer.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Biggleswade I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Biggleswade in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I'm remortgaging my primary property to a buy to let loan with Bank of Scotland and I will use the rest of the raised equity towards a second house. The area we are looking at is Biggleswade. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of banks and link together the two deals?

Make use of our search tool on this site to ensure that the lawyers are approved by both banks. On the basis that they are the conveyancer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you conveyancer and make clear your expectations and requirements.
