My wife and I are in the throws of looking at flats in Cleethorpes and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a conveyancer in place at this point? I will be getting a home loan with Yorkshire BS.
It would be advisable to instigate your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Cleethorpes. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. Should I wish 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 Aldermore?
You must advise Aldermore in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Aldermore 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 Aldermore directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel firm.
My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Cleethorpes and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Cleethorpes lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Cleethorpes. Having lived in Cleethorpes for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
