I have a property which i have been renting out for 2 years but now fixed term is coming to end. I am looking to move in to this property say in 6-12 months but would like to continue to rent out for the period in between.
What are the best next steps in regards to the mortgage, find a broker or just stay where I am until I move in?
Be upfront with a residential lender about your intentions. Get a resi mortgage with "consent to let" until you are able to move in. I would get a fixed rate mortgage now as rates may go up after Brexit ...

Thanks Vanessa, in terms of a broker I have used LandC in the past. Are there any other alternatives that maybe worth exploring who are a similar size?

Fazsnatch, its not clear from your original post whether you have a BTL or residential mortgage on your property. If it is a residential, you should indeed ask for Consent to Let from the lender, which is not usually denied so long as you have maintained your Terms and Conditions.
If you have a BTL, why not let it run on the SVR for 6 months? Chances are that a remortgage would not be cost effective just for 6 months or so, when you consider the costs associated with a change, such as arrangement fees, ERC's (because chances are you will have them), valuation, legal fees etc. Sure the monthly cost would be higher temporarily, but it would be cheaper overall.
