I am in the throes of swapping over from my domestic home loan to a Buy to Let HSBC Bank mortgage. The bank has said that I must appoint a solicitor as part of the process. I had a chat my previous Newton Aycliffe conveyancing firm who dealt with the legals when I initially bought the house. The costs illustration supplied of £550 has surprised me as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a little overpriced. If you you were to look around you may be able to decrease the fees slightly by perhaps £100 plus VAT.

My wife and I purchased a renovated Georgian house in Newton Aycliffe. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and The Mortgage Works. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking The Mortgage Works to clarify?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Newton Aycliffe and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.
How does conveyancing in Newton Aycliffe differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Newton Aycliffe come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Newton Aycliffe tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Newton Aycliffe or who has acted in the same development.
