I have just started taking steps with the aim of changing my current homeowner mortgage to a BTL Bank of Ireland mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I need a conveyancer for this. I spoke to the same St Clears conveyancing solicitor who dealt with the legals when I previously acquired the property. The costs illustration sent of £500 has surprised me as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a little steep. If you are prepared to invest time scrutinising charges you might shave off some of the cost by as much as £125.

I have todaybeen informed that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in St Clears for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of St Clears conveyancing specialists.
Our financial adviser has recommended their lawyer for our conveyancing in St Clears - Surely it’s advisable to just use them?
It is not always the case and you are at liberty to opt for whichever property lawyer you decide for your St Clears conveyancing. The conveyancing practitioner put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not necessarily be the best lawyer, they may recommend their own conveyancing firm who are based far away. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancing practitioner and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
