The mortgage over my property is with Nationwide for my property in Marazion. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. If I am intending 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 Nationwide?
You must advise Nationwide before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’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 Nationwide directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor.
Our offer on a detached house in Marazion has been accepted, the owners do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Marazion. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with HSBC going?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Marazion conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your conveyancer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with HSBC and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Marazion.
