I have just started taking steps with a view to switching my current homeowner loan to a Buy to Let Alliance & Leicester mortgage. I was told by my mortgage that I need a conveyancer for this. I spoke to my former Hampton Hill conveyancing solicitor who dealt with the legals when I first acquired the property. The costs estimate supplied of £500 has surprised me as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.
The charges seem a tad high. Where you are prepared to expend time scrutinising charges you may be able to trim some of the cost by perhaps a hundred pounds. That being said, if you were satisfied with the service the firm gave you couldlive to regret opting for an an untested conveyancer. Don't forget to be sure the conveyancer can act for Alliance & Leicester .

I am about to complete buying a house in Hampton Hill but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of six thousand pounds by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract yet Aldermore will not agree to this. Why were they notified?
Any conveyancing practitioner being on a Aldermore approved list is duty bound to advise Aldermore of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the price change to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Hampton Hill.
I am the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Hampton Hill. The Hampton Hill property was put into my name in December. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in December. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. Some banks would take a pragmatic view as this obligation chiefly exists to capture subsales or the flipping of property.
