I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Rottingdean. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Principality?

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

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Nottingham are being problematic. The Rottingdean solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Nottingham are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My husband and I are a fortnight into a leasehold purchase having been directed to solicitors by the high street agent to do our conveyancing in Rottingdean. I am am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you you assist me in finding new lawyers?

In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and have the loan are issued to the new lawyers.

We expect to complete our sale of a £200,000 maisonette in Rottingdean in just under a week. The managing agents has quoted £408 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Rottingdean?

Rottingdean conveyancing on leasehold flats normally involves the purchaser’s solicitor submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be content to do so. They may charge a reasonable charge for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is in excess of £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has little choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.

Rottingdean Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing

    You should be aware that where the lease has no more than 80 years it will affect the salability of the property. Check with your lender that they are happy with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will almost definitely have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this would cost. For most Rottingdeanlease extensions you would be required to have been the owner of the premises for two years in order to be legally able to extend the lease. Best to be warned whether window replacement or some other major work is coming up that will be shared by the tenants and may well dramatically impact the level of the service fees or result in a one time invoice.
