I am in the throes of changing my existing standard mortgage to a Buy to Let TSB mortgage. I was told by my financial advisor that I must appoint a conveyancer as part of the process.

The costs illustration supplied of £500 has taken me by surprise as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s just a bog-standard refinance.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Muxton. The Muxton property was put into my name in March. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation chiefly exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

About to purchase apartment in Muxton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Muxton property lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Muxton took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am purchasing a new build house in Muxton with a mortgage from Virgin Money. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead.
