It is is a decade since I bought my house in Cullercoats. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I can't find my deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be retained by the lender or they could be archived with the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Cullercoats relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

I currently have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in Cullercoats. Conveyancing has been completed a year 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 Nottingham?
Your original mortgage agreement with Nottingham will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nottingham 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 Nottingham directly. You need not do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel solicitor.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Cullercoats - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
