Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor may charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Nottingham but by your Hemel Hempstead conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Nottingham panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
I currently have a mortgage with Santander for my property in Hemel Hempstead. Conveyancing has been completed months 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 Santander?
You must advise Santander before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Santander’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies 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 Santander directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Santander conveyancing panel lawyer.

I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Hemel Hempstead.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated however I have recently had a yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the invoice as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance payments should be apportionedon completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
