I have just started taking steps with a view to switching my current homeowner loan to a Buy to Let Alliance & Leicester mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I must appoint a conveyancer for this.

The quote provided of £470 is surprising as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s just a straightforward remortgage.

Me and my brother own a terraced Georgian house in Dawlish. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Skipton Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Skipton Building Society to clarify?
You need to review 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dawlish and other locations in 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 lenders. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
I'm buying a new build house in Dawlish with a loan from The Mortgage Works. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about this side-deal as it may adversely affect my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Dawlish I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Dawlish in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
I am using a search engine for the phrase cheap conveyancing in Dawlish it brings up many solicitorsin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the suitable property lawyer for purchase transaction?
The preferential method of choosing a suitable conveyancer is through a trusted testimonial, so enquire of colleagues and family who have purchased a property in Dawlish or the reputable estate agent or mortgage broker. Fees for conveyancing in Dawlish vary, so it's advisable to secure at least four quotes from different law firms. Be sure to secure confirmation what costs in the quote includes.
