We previously instructed conveyancers located in Market Deeping on the Santander solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate fee for the legal aspects of the Santander mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Santander?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Santander but by your Market Deeping lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Santander panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
I currently have a mortgage with RBS for my property in Market Deeping. 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 RBS?
Your original mortgage agreement with RBS will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of RBS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that RBS 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 RBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a RBS conveyancing panel solicitor.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agent office in Market Deeping where we have experienced a few flat sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Market Deeping conveyancing firms. Could you confirm whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
