I have a mortgage with Yorkshire BS for my property in Upney. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. In the event that I decide 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 Yorkshire BS?
You must advise Yorkshire BS prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Yorkshire BS’s mortgage conditions.

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Upney. All leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain provisions are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the property
A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property.

You can appoint a conveyancing practitioner now requesting that they generate a file for you.

That being said, do not instruct your property lawyer to order searches until you have your valuation report from Halifax and you are content to proceed.
