The mortgage over my property is with Yorkshire BS for my property in Nelson. Conveyancing was finalised months 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 BTL mortgage or inform Yorkshire BS?
Your original mortgage agreement with Yorkshire BS will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Yorkshire BS’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 Yorkshire BS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel lawyer.

I got the keys to my house on 2 August and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Nelson expressed confidence that it will be registered in less than a month. Are properties in Nelson particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Nelson registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the buyer has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Nelson I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Nelson for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
