I currently have a mortgage with Leeds Building Society for my property in West Drayton. Conveyancing has been completed months 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 buy-to-let mortgage or inform Leeds Building Society?
Leeds Building Society must be informed of your intention in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Leeds Building Society’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent 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 Leeds Building Society directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel lawyer.

Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in West Drayton.
I am buying my first flat in West Drayton with a loan from Aldermore. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with Aldermore. Should I keep quiet?.
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.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
