Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Finchampstead

We have very pushy vendors who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are two main drawbacks with entering into any lock out contract (occasionally known as an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from progressing with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not promoted amongst Finchampstead conveyancing lawyers for this reason. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is not likely to win an injunctive ruling by a court to stop the seller disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in restricted circumstances, the extra payment of damages.

Given that your lender is Leeds Building Society your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Leeds Building Society. The CML Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Leeds Building Society where a lease fails to meet these requirements.

I currently have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in Finchampstead. Conveyancing has been completed some time 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 Nottingham?

Your original mortgage agreement with Nottingham will provide that you need their approval prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’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 Nottingham directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel solicitor.
