I am in the throes of switching my current homeowner mortgage to a BTL Virgin Money mortgage. I was told by my mortgage that I need a lawyer as part of the process. I got in contact with my former Baglan conveyancing practitioner who acted on my behalf when I originally bought the property. The quote supplied of £500 is surprising as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.
The charges seem a tad high. If you you were to look around you might shave off some of the expense by as much as £125. That being said, if you were content with the conveyancing the firm gave you couldcome to regret opting for an an unknown conveyancer. Remember to check that the solicitor can represent Virgin Money.
