I currently have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in South Norwood. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish 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 Nottingham?

Your original mortgage agreement with Nottingham will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nottingham 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 Nottingham directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel firm.

Nottingham have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a apartment in South Norwood has been agreed to, what are the next steps?

Your estate agent will want to be informed of your lawyer's details (make sure the lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone Nottingham or the financial adviser and finalise any relevant documentation. Nottingham will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nottingham will send the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in South Norwood.

I acquired my home on 10 May and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in South Norwood expressed confidence that it would be dealt with in less than a month. Are properties in South Norwood particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in South Norwood registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property therefore registration formalities is not always primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm purchasing my first flat in South Norwood with a loan from National Westminster Bank. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent told me not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the lender. 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%.
