On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from your estate agent but this should only take place once the previous owners lawyers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be handed over.

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Bollington. The Bollington property was put into my name in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this clause is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of property.

The mortgage over my property is with TSB for my property in Bollington. Conveyancing has been completed 12 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 TSB?

TSB must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of TSB’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 TSB directly. You need not do this via a TSB conveyancing panel solicitor.

Some leases for properties in Bollington do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I purchased a split level flat in Bollington, conveyancing having been completed June 2003. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Bollington with over 90 years remaining are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2074

You have 55 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £31,400 and £36,200 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
