I have just started taking steps with a view to swapping over from my existing standard home loan to a Buy to Let Platform Home Loans Ltd mortgage. The bank has said that I need a solicitor as part of the process. I got in contact with my previous Whaley Bridge conveyancing practitioner who acted on my behalf when I previously acquired the premises. The pricing estimate issued of £450 plus VAT has shocked me as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s simply a straightforward remortgage.
The estimate does seem a little on the high side. If you are willing to expend time contrasting prices you could decrease the fees marginally by perhaps £125.

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Virgin Money your lawyer must check the formal instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Virgin Money.

The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Whaley Bridge.
