Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Mudeford. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Mudeford?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Mudeford.

I have a mortgage with Leeds Building Society for my property in Mudeford. Conveyancing was finalised some time 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 buy-to-let mortgage or inform Leeds Building Society?

Leeds Building Society must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Leeds Building Society’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 Leeds Building Society directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel solicitor.

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called my Mudeford building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Mudeford conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the solicitor is on the mortgage company panel, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

My wife and I own a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Mudeford. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Chelsea Building Society.

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Mudeford and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
