We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Woodford conveyancing practitioners are appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Barclays?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Barclays conducted the valuation? Have you advised Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Woodford. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Principality?
Your original mortgage agreement with Principality will provide that you need their approval before 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 lawyer.

I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Woodford.Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed but I have recently received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as normal as all rents and service invoices will be allottedon completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
