    Legal fees for mortgage on existing property

    Hi all,

    I own an existing property outright but am looking at putting a mortgage on this property to raise a deposit for another one.

    I thought the solicitors charges for this would be very low but have been quoted £900 plus a further £250 for searches and land registry fee. Is the 900 normal? I did not think i would need searches and land registry fee at all as I already own the property!

    They are doing the searches for the Lender - which is providing you finance on the strength of that property.

    The costs do not seem an unreasonable amount to me.

    I don't know how much fees vary around the country but the fees on our 3 bed freehold BTL house one year ago were £660 if I rememeber correctly.

    Some lenders insist on searches others accept insurance

    Difficult to comment on cost as BTL, leasehold, if a limited company, lender dictate price.

    I can get a BTL basic remortgage for £375 in personal name and freehold and that includes insurance instead of searches
