I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Creekmouth. Conveyancing has been completed some time 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 Principality?
You must advise Principality before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’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 Principality directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Principality conveyancing panel solicitor.
Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Creekmouth solicitor - who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Creekmouth postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Creekmouth.
My wife and I own a renovated Victorian property in Creekmouth. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Barclays . I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking Barclays to clarify?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Creekmouth and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Creekmouth is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Creekmouth are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Creekmouth you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Creekmouth may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

We have been informed by numerous family members that it may take up to two months for Creekmouth conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The paperwork was only received to my property lawyer last week so now does it countdown?
Do not count on completing on a specific date until exchange of contracts takes place. Whatever promises the people you are buying from or selling to make, or your conveyancer gives don't rely on them. More stress is caused to clients trying to move home by false promises than any other factor when it comes to conveyancing in Creekmouth.
