Do not opt for the cheapest Mousehole conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. 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 advance.

The mortgage over my property is with Clydesdale for my property in Mousehole. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Clydesdale?
Your original mortgage agreement with Clydesdale will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Clydesdale directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel solicitor.
How does conveyancing in Mousehole differ for new build properties?

It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Mousehole or who has acted in the same development.
