I'm in the process of swapping over from my current homeowner loan to a BTL Leeds Building Society mortgage. The bank has said that I must appoint a conveyancer as part of the process. I had a chat my former Hilton conveyancing practitioner who dealt with the legals when I first purchased the premises. The fee estimate e-mailed to me of £470 is surprising as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.
The costs illustration is fractionally on the expensive side. Where you are prepared to expend time contrasting charges you might reduce the fees marginally by as much as £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, providing that you were satisfied with the conveyancing the firm gave you couldcome to regret choosing an an unknown conveyancer.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Hilton? Why is this being asked of me?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Hilton conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account showing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are obliged by law to investigate not just the ID of conveyancing clients but also the origin of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may lead to your conveyancer terminating their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers are duty bound to inform the relevant authorities should they believe that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
