It would be advisable to start your search sooner rather than later.

I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Dartmouth Park. Conveyancing has been completed 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 Principality?

Your original mortgage agreement with Principality will provide that you need their approval prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Principality 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. You need not do this via a Principality conveyancing panel firm.

Will my lawyer be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Dartmouth Park.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Dartmouth Park. Plenty of people will purchase a property in Dartmouth Park, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Dartmouth Park. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the owner, then a buyer could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading reply. The purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an environmental report. This will disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be made.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Dartmouth Park. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I inherited a basement flat in Dartmouth Park. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium due for the purchase of the freehold?
