I have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Epworth. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. In the event that I decide 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 UBS?
Your original mortgage agreement with UBS will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies 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 UBS directly. You need not do this via a UBS conveyancing panel lawyer.
Intending to buy a house in Epworth. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a 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 Epworth conveyancer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
