I have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Leyton. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish 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 Coventry BS?

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

Just bought a semi-detached house in Leyton , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Leyton conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my ownership is recorded.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Leyton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises so registration formalities is not usually an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I am purchasing a new build house in Leyton with a loan from Skipton Building Society. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
