I currently have a mortgage with Yorkshire BS for my property in Longhope. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. In the event that I decide 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 Yorkshire BS?

You must advise Yorkshire BS prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Yorkshire BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Yorkshire 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 Yorkshire BS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel lawyer.

My sealed bid on a detached house in Longhope has been agreed to, the owners do nevertheless have an associated purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Longhope. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with TSB going?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Longhope conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancer is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of home buyers will apply for the mortgage with TSB and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to press on with searches.

I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Longhope for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Longhope conveyancing specialists.

I am buying a new build house in Longhope benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the extras as it could affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

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

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
