Even though it may seem unfair for lenders to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s viewpoint, the the contrary view is that mortgage companies are becoming ever more anxious and regard it essential to defend themselves from mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

The mortgage over my property is with Barclays for my property in Cheetham Hill. Conveyancing has been completed a year 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 buy-to-let mortgage or inform Barclays?
Your original mortgage agreement with Barclays will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Barclays’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 Barclays directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Barclays conveyancing panel lawyer.
