After the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s was left as a compulsory part of moving house. An EPC must be to hand in advance of the property being advertised.

The mortgage over my property is with Nationwide for my property in Gallows Corner. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. In the event that I decide 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 Nationwide?

Nationwide must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nationwide 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 Nationwide directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor.

It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Gallows Corner bank branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Gallows Corner conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the conveyancer is on the bank approved list, they must adhere to the CML Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Having lived in Gallows Corner for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Gallows Corner ahead of appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold property.
