The mortgage over my property is with Nottingham for my property in Dickens Heath. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending 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?

You must advise Nottingham prior to renting 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. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel lawyer.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Dickens Heath. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Dickens Heath conveyancing practitioner is on the RBS conveyancing panel.

I purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Dickens Heath. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Platform Home Loans Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Platform Home Loans Ltd to clarify?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dickens Heath and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

I'm refinancing my current house to a BTL loan with Leeds Building Society and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a deposit on a second property. The neighborhood we are interested in is Dickens Heath. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two lenders and tie in the transactions?

Do use our comparison tool on this page to check that the solicitors are approved by both lenders. On the basis that they are your solicitor will be able to tie up the two transactions but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and make clear your expectations and requirements.
