Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Todwick conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Santander?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Santander completed the valuation? Have you informed Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I'm at the point of looking at apartments in Todwick and I am about to put in an offer. Is it best to have a property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a home loan with Barclays.
It would be advisable to commence your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the selling agent. As you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I currently have a mortgage with TSB for my property in Todwick. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months 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 TSB?
You must advise TSB before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of TSB’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 TSB directly. You need not do this via a TSB conveyancing panel lawyer.

Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in Todwick?
Todwick conveyancing on leasehold flats normally involves the purchaser’s conveyancer sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer these enquiries most will be willing to do so. They may charge a reasonable charge for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it exceeds £800. The management information fee levied by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the charge is not strictly payable. In reality you have little option but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.
