We had instructed conveyancers with offices in Dolwyddelan on the Lloyds solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me an additional fee for dealing with the Lloyds mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Lloyds?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Lloyds but by your Dolwyddelan conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Lloyds panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I have a mortgage with Leeds Building Society for my property in Dolwyddelan. Conveyancing was finalised some time 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 Leeds Building Society?
Leeds Building Society must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Leeds Building Society’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Leeds Building Society 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 Leeds Building Society directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel firm.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Dolwyddelan. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Dolwyddelan
There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
