I am in the throes of changing my existing standard mortgage to a Buy to Let Bank of Ireland mortgage. The bank has said that I require a solicitor for this. I spoke to my past Ruislip conveyancing firm who who did the conveyancing when I initially acquired the house. The fee calculation they've given of £550 is an eye-watering amount to do this as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.
The estimate fees seem a bit high. Where you are prepared to expend time comparing prices you may be able to reduce the fees slightly by as much as £125. That being said, providing that you were happy with the assistance the firm gave you mightcome to rue opting for an a cheaper solicitor. Don't forget to be sure that the firm can represent Bank of Ireland.

When will exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Ruislip and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Ruislip you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally.

I am assisting my niece sell her property in Ruislip. Does the conveyancer commission the EPC or do I organise this?

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the process as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Ruislip. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Ruislip?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Ruislip. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the owner’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being difficult. The Ruislip solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Bank of Ireland are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
