I'm in the process of porting my existing standard home loan to a Buy to Let Norwich and Peterborough Building Society mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I must appoint a lawyer for this. I got in contact with my former Winslow conveyancing solicitor who dealt with the legals when I previously purchased the house. The quote e-mailed to me of £550 has surprised me as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a little on the high side. If you you were to look around you could decrease the fees slightly by as much as £100 plus VAT.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Winslow is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Winslow are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Winslow you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Winslow 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 property.
