I am assisting my sister sell her property in Waterhouses. Does the conveyancing solicitor arrange an energy performance certificate or do I organise this?
Following the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments was kept a compulsory component of moving house. An energy assessment must be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not something that conveyancers normally organise. Where you are using a Waterhouses conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with reputable Waterhouses energy assessors
I currently have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in Waterhouses. Conveyancing was finalised months 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?
Your original mortgage agreement with Nottingham will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’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 Nottingham directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel firm.
