Pictons Invited By Barclays Bank To Present at a Buy To Let Event

Pictons was invited by Barclays Bank to present at an event aimed at potential Buy To Let investors and landlords. Pictons has a number of top conveyancing law specialists. Neil Terrell, a Partner with the firm talked about the conveyancing issues that solicitors look at for Buy To Let property transactions, while solicitor Kathryn Dale presented on Landlord and Tenant Law, including ensuring how not to end up in a dispute.

The topics Neil and Kathryn covered included:

• Landlords key obligations
• Not lawful obligations – but a very good idea!
• Ending the tenancy
• Tenancy deposits
• Recent legal updates
• Overiding advice that is absolutely essential

Neil Terrell says “We were delighted to be invited by Barclays Bank in Hemel Hempstead to speak on the subject of conveyancing for Buy To Let properties and landlords. With the growth in the economy the housing market is really booming in Hemel Hempstead and we are definitely seeing a growth in people investing in properties as landlords. It is absolutely essential to ensure that any potential landlord is aware of the laws governing Buy To Lets otherwise they can leave themselves very unprotected and could face damaging losses in their considerable investment.”

Lauren Lynch CeMAP the Woolwich Mortgage Adviser in the Home Solutions dept at Barclays Bank in Hemel Hempstead says “We ran the Buy To Let seminar in conjunction with our Premier Banking team, our Business Banking team and of course our Mortgage team. We invited a number of our local clients in to discuss the features and benefits of Buy to Lets. Barclays discussed its proposition for Buy To Let mortgages and we invited Pictons, as a leading local law firm, to give a presentation in regards to the conveyancing that needs to be done in relation to the purchase of a Buy Too Let property. We also invited a local accountancy firm and letting agency to present.

“The event was big success and our clients asked Pictons a lot of questions after the presentation, as they did with the other speakers. We think this was of great benefit to our clients and we intend to hold similar events in the near future.”
