A colleague pointed out to me me that in buying a property in Limbury there could be a number of restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to the property. Is this right?

I currently have a mortgage with Santander for my property in Limbury. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. If I am intending 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 Santander?

Santander must be informed of your intention in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Santander’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 Santander directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Santander conveyancing panel firm.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Limbury?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Limbury. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's chosen solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Limbury

It is improbable the sellers are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Limbury conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will provide the estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.

What makes a Limbury lease defective?

Leasehold conveyancing in Limbury is not unique. Most leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the property

A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Barclays , Leeds Building Society, and Alliance & Leicester all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the purchaser to pull out.
