I have just started taking steps with a view to transferring my current homeowner loan to a Buy to Let TSB mortgage. I was told by my financial advisor that I require a solicitor as part of the process. I spoke to my former Stokenchurch conveyancing practitioner who dealt with the legals when I originally purchased the house. The costs estimate supplied of £470 has surprised me as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.
The estimate fees are a tad high. If you you were to look around you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say £125. On the other hand, assuming were pleased with the legal work the firm offered you maycome to regret choosing an an unknown solicitor. If is important to enquire that the conveyancer can also act for TSB. You can make use of our search tool to choose a Stokenchurch conveyancing firm on the TSB approved list of lawyers, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Stokenchurch.

Our offer on a detached house in Stokenchurch has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Stokenchurch. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Stokenchurch conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should ensure that your conveyancer is on the Clydesdale approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.

The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it will impact my mortgage with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
