I have a mortgage with Lloyds for my property in Maida Hill. Conveyancing was finalised a year 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 Lloyds?
Your original mortgage agreement with Lloyds will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’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 Lloyds directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor.
The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Maida Hill. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
About to purchase house in Maida Hill. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Maida Hill conveyancer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

Have completed on a a detached house in Maida Hill , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Maida Hill conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my ownership is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Maida Hill registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any third parties. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the property so post completion formalities is not typically primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I am purchasing my first flat in Maida Hill with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent told me not inform my lawyer about this extras as it would put at risk my mortgage with Lloyds TSB Bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
