I am in the throes of transferring my current residential mortgage to a Buy to Let Bank of Ireland mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I must appoint a lawyer as part of the process. I had a chat my past Laindon conveyancing firm who acted on my behalf when I first purchased the premises. The quote e-mailed to me of £575 plus disbursements has shocked me as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s just a bog-standard refinance.
The costs illustration is fractionally on the steep side. If you shop around you could decrease the fees slightly by as much as £100 plus VAT.

Me and my partner are soon to complete buying a property in Laindon but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the vendor of six thousand pounds in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet UBS will not permit this. Should they have been involved?
Any solicitor being on a UBS approved list is required to disclose to UBS of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to disclose the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, UBS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Laindon.
I just bought a flat at auction in Laindon. Conveyancing is required. What happens now?
Now that you are for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to instruct a conveyancing practitioner soon as you now have a fast approaching a fixed date to complete the transaction. Every auction property will ordinarily have a corresponding auction set of papers. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold premises the conveyancing pack should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork relating to leasehold premises. You need to hand this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor ASAP. Do make sure that your finances are organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home buying as FTB of a ground floor flat in Laindon. Do I pick up the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Laindon?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Laindon. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
We were going to get a OIP from Co-operative this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Laindon solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Laindon solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Laindon is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Laindon are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Laindon you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Laindon 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.
I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Laindon. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
