solicitors costs


Recommended Posts


i have a building that consists of 3 small commercial shops and a maisonette above, they are all on one title, i need to split them so i can raise a mortgage on the maisonette, i have had the drawings done and have had a quote from the solicitors for £1500 + vat.

has anybody had anything like this done before, as i wasnt expecting to pay this much.

Hi Russ

That sounds a tad expensive ...never done it ...but have been led to believe that it would cost sround £400 to do ??

Why cant you just borrow against the asset as a "whole" ...guessing you want the domestic element to avoid commercial lending rates?.....Just grant a 99 yr lease to your missus and borrow against that ?.....!
