The mortgage over my property is with Kent Reliance for my property in Aldershot. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. In the event that I decide 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 Kent Reliance?

You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should double-check via your solicitors. A buyer’s lawyer will not be happy to advise their client to where the remaining number of years is under 75 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring?

Where a duplicate share certificate is required, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this sooner rather than later.
