I'm in the process of transferring my current homeowner loan to a BTL Barnsley Building Society mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I need a solicitor as part of the process. I had a chat my past Baglan conveyancing solicitor who who did the conveyancing when I initially bought the house. The fee estimate they've given of £470 has taken me by surprise as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you are content to spend time comparing prices you might shave off some of the cost by perhaps £125. On the other hand, providing that you were happy with the service the firm provided you couldlive to regret choosing an an unknown solicitor.

Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Baglan. My lender is Tesco Bank
Tesco Bank have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 5/8/2021, the requirements read as follows :
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Baglan I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Baglan in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
