I have just started taking steps with a view to porting my current homeowner home loan to a BTL Nottingham Building Society mortgage. The bank has said that I need a conveyancer for this. I got in contact with my past Bewdley conveyancing practitioner who acted on my behalf when I initially bought the property. The fee calculation they've given of £550 has surprised me as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s simply a bog-standard refinance.

How does conveyancing in Bewdley differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Bewdley approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Bewdley usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bewdley or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Bewdley is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Bewdley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bewdley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bewdley may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
