I have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Sedbergh. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Aldermore?

Your original mortgage agreement with Aldermore will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Aldermore 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 Aldermore directly. You need not do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.

Will our lawyer be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Sedbergh.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Sedbergh. There are those who buy a property in Sedbergh, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Sedbergh. The standard property information forms given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual question of the seller to find out whether the premises has historically flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser could bring a claim for damages stemming from an misleading reply. The buyer’s conveyancers will also commission an enviro report. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be made.

How does conveyancing in Sedbergh differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Sedbergh come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Sedbergh tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Sedbergh or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Sedbergh ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend not give a mortgage on a flying freehold house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Sedbergh. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Sedbergh especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Sedbergh.
