I have just started taking steps with the aim of swapping over from my current residential home loan to a Buy to Let National Westminster Bank mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I must appoint a conveyancer as part of the process. I got in contact with my former Norbury conveyancing firm who dealt with the legals when I first acquired the property. The costs illustration sent of £470 is an eye-watering amount to do this as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s just a straightforward remortgage.
The costs illustration is fractionally on the steep side. If you are prepared to spend time comparing prices you may be able to shave off some of the expense by perhaps a hundred pounds. That being said, if you were satisfied with the conveyancing the firm gave you couldlive to regret opting for an a cheaper conveyancer.

Do I need to be wary about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending an online conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Norbury conveyancing firm?
As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be very helpful. But there are many players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all recommend lawyers to instruct. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to choose your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that many mortgage providers operate an approved list of lawyers you must use for the lender aspect of your home move.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Norbury what are the most frequent lease problems?
Leasehold conveyancing in Norbury is not unique. Most leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain clauses are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Insurance obligations Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Barclays , The Mortgage Works, and Nottingham Building Society all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the buyer to pull out.
My estate agent has recommended their lawyer for my conveyancing in Norbury - Surely it’s better to just instruct them?
It is worth checking if the estate agent is recommending a solicitor or introducing to a lawyer. There are plenty of Norbury selling agents who recommend two or three Norbury conveyancing firms purely based on those lawyers offering a great service.
