I have just started taking steps with a view to changing my current residential home loan to a BTL Halifax mortgage. I was told by my financial advisor that I need a solicitor as part of the process. I had a chat my past Stanmore conveyancing firm who dealt with the legals when I initially purchased the house. The costs illustration e-mailed to me of just over five hundred pounds is surprising as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a little overpriced. If you are willing to expend time contrasting costs you may be able to decrease the fees marginally by say £100 plus VAT. That being said, assuming were pleased with the conveyancing the firm offered you couldlive to regret opting for an an untested lawyer. Remember to enquire that the conveyancer can represent Halifax.

We are acquiring our first house. Our solicitor has calledto enquire if we wish to purchase supplemental conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's recommended for conveyancing in Stanmore
The number and type of Stanmore conveyancing searches should be dictated primarily on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your familiarity of the region and risks, your overall approach to risk. What is important is that you properly appreciate what information each search could supply. You may then decide if you personally think you need that information. If uncertain, ask the solicitor to recommend.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Stanmore? What am I being asked for?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Stanmore 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 evidencing where you live.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are required to validate not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will result in your lawyer 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 notify the appropriate authorities should they consider that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Stanmore is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Stanmore are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Stanmore you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stanmore may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent told us that the owners will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Stanmore
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Stanmore conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
