I have just started taking steps with the aim of switching my existing standard mortgage to a BTL TSB mortgage. I was told by my financial advisor that I must appoint a lawyer for this. I got in contact with my former Burwell conveyancing firm who acted on my behalf when I initially bought the premises. The fee calculation they've given of £470 is surprising as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a tad overpriced. If you you were to look around you could shave off some of the cost by as much as a hundred pounds. On the other hand, if you were satisfied with the conveyancing the firm provided you mightlive to rue choosing an a cheaper lawyer. Remember to be sure the firm can represent TSB.

I own a freehold residence in Burwell yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Burwell and has limited impact for conveyancing in Burwell but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be extinguished.
Have purchased a a terraced house in Burwell , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my title? My Burwell conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Burwell registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected once the new owner is living at the premises therefore registration formalities is not usually primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Burwell and how can your lawyers assist?
