I have just started taking steps with the intention of changing my domestic mortgage to a BTL The Mortgage Works mortgage. I was told by my financial advisor that I must appoint a lawyer as part of the process. I spoke to my former Aberdovey conveyancing firm who dealt with the legals when I originally bought the premises. The fee estimate they've given of £500 has taken me by surprise as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.

What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Aberdovey
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Aberdovey conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Nationwide are being pedantic. The Aberdovey solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Nationwide are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Our sealed bid on a property in Aberdovey has been agreed to, the vendors do however have an associated purchase. The owners have offered on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Aberdovey. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Aldermore going?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Aberdovey conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Aldermore approved list. As to the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Aldermore and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to proceed with searches.
I have a terraced Victorian property in Aberdovey. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Aberdovey and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with the conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
I have been pointed in your direction by a few selling agents in Aberdovey to locate a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers rather than a competitor’s?
We refuse to offer any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
