I currently have a mortgage with Santander for my property in Camberwell. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Santander?
Your original mortgage agreement with Santander will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Santander’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Santander 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 Santander directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Santander conveyancing panel lawyer.
It is unclear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Camberwell bank branch on a couple of occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Camberwell conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
The property lawyer must follow the CML Handbook section two specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I am purchasing my first flat in Camberwell with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it may adversely affect my loan with The Royal Bank of Scotland. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
