All auction property should have a corresponding legal pack. This will likely include most,if not all of the paperwork that your solicitor requires.

The mortgage over my property is with Clydesdale for my property in Soho. Conveyancing was finalised 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 buy-to-let mortgage or inform Clydesdale?

Clydesdale must be informed of your intention prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’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 Clydesdale directly. You need not do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel firm.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Soho. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Soho

    Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Soho I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Soho for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

My wife and I have chosen a Soho conveyancing solicitor for our home move (novice purchasers) and have picked up in the terms and conditions that they are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Need I be concerned or is that standard with conveyancing practitioner?

We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancer don't lend money. They will be governed by the SRA, who have specific stipulations in place on amounts sitting by them.
