The mortgage over my property is with Coventry BS for my property in Gilberdyke. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months 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 BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?

You must advise Coventry BS prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry BS 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 Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel firm.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Gilberdyke solicitor having made sure that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Skipton will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Skipton will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Gilberdyke surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

This is not necessarily the case and you are entitled to instruct whichever conveyancer of your choosing for your Gilberdyke conveyancing. A lawyer recommended by a 3rd party adviser may not always be the best solicitor, they may recommend their own conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your solicitor and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain updates.
