The buy-to-let conveyancing process is followed for landlords who purchase properties with the sole purpose to rent out. Since buy-to-lets are classed as investment property, you will need a solicitor.

Whether you’re a first time landlord, you’re planning to expand your property portfolio, or you’re looking to sell, our specialist buy to let conveyancing solicitors are on hand to make the process as smooth and straightforward as possible.

How can our Buy to Let conveyancing solicitors help?

At Harding Evans, our solicitors are well versed in the intricacies of buy to let conveyancing and can handle every aspect of your property transaction on your behalf. We have in-depth experience of working with specialist buy-to-let mortgage lenders and bridging loans and also deal with many Company purchases, so are familiar with the complexities of acting for a Company client.

Our specialist solicitors can assist you throughout the entire buy to let conveyancing process, including:

  • Liaising with interested parties; such as the other party’s solicitors, estate agents, mortgage lenders, surveyors, and freehold landlords (if necessary)
  • Undertaking searches and reporting on the legal title to the property, including the seller’s right to sell
  • Advising on right and restrictions associated with the property, including rights of way, drainage, and boundaries
  • Drafting or reviewing all legal documentation including the sale contract
  • Ensuring monies are transferred to the right places at the right time so the transaction completes as agreed
  • Advising on Land Transaction Taxes (Wales) or Stamp Duty Land Taxes (England)
  • Liaising with HM Land Registry in relation to the correct registration of the property and ownership
  • Advising on your legal rights and responsibilities as a landlord, including ongoing costs and maintenance advice
  • Liaising with your mortgage provider to change the mortgage on your current property from a residential mortgage to a buy to let mortgage, or providing advice about remortgaging to allow you to rent the property out
