I'm in the process of porting my domestic mortgage to a Buy to Let Barclays Direct mortgage. The bank has said that I need a lawyer as part of the process. I spoke to my former Braunton conveyancing solicitor who dealt with the legals when I originally acquired the property. The pricing estimate supplied of £575 plus disbursements is an eye-watering amount to do this as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.

The estimate does seem a little steep. If you you were to look around you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps £125. On the other hand, assuming were pleased with the service the firm offered you maycome to rue choosing an an untested lawyer. Don't forget to be sure the solicitor can act for Barclays Direct.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Braunton 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?

These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know exactly where to locate all the appropriate documentation so you can purchase or dispose of your house without a hitch. Where duplicates can’t be found, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities against future claims on your premises.

I'm refinancing my existing house to a buy to let loan with The Royal Bank of Scotland and I will use the rest of the raised equity towards a second house. The area we are talking about is Braunton. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two lenders and link together the conveyances?

Do use our search tool on this site to be sure that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panels. Assuming that they are your lawyer should be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you solicitor and make apparent your desired outcome and needs.

My husband and I may need to rent out our Braunton garden flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Braunton conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Braunton do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I bought a studio flat in Braunton, conveyancing was carried out in 2005. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent flats in Braunton with an extended lease are worth £191,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2073

With 53 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £27,600 and £31,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
