I have just started taking steps with the aim of swapping over from my domestic mortgage to a BTL Santander mortgage. I was told by my mortgage that I need a conveyancer for this. I spoke to my previous Pangbourne conveyancing firm who dealt with the legals when I originally bought the house. The fee estimate sent of just over five hundred pounds is surprising as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a little overpriced. Where you are prepared to spend time scrutinising costs you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as £125. That being said, providing that you were satisfied with the assistance the firm offered you couldlive to regret opting for an an untested solicitor. Remember to ensure that the solicitor can act for Santander.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Pangbourne. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office.

Our sealed bid on a detached house in Pangbourne has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Pangbourne. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with RBS going?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Pangbourne conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancer is on the RBS approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Pangbourne.
How does conveyancing in Pangbourne differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Pangbourne come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Pangbourne usually acquire the site, 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Pangbourne or who has acted in the same development.
