I am planning to move property in October. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Pontprennau. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across this page.

After that you should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Pontprennau or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Pontprennau.
I have a mortgage with Skipton for my property in Pontprennau. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Skipton?
Your original mortgage agreement with Skipton will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Skipton 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 Skipton directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel firm.
