I currently have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in Ruislip. 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 Nottingham?

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

My wife and I purchased a terraced Georgian property in Ruislip. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Virgin Money. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to review 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Ruislip and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

Do I need to be wary about estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Ruislip conveyancing practice?

As with lots of service providers, often input from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may put forward lawyers to appoint. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that the majority of lenders specify a panel list of solicitors you have to use for the mortgage aspect of your home move.

I want to rent out my leasehold flat in Ruislip. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

Some leases for properties in Ruislip do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such matters? Can you recommend a Ruislip conveyancing firm to help?

Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Ruislip conveyancing firm who can help.
