Can I ask does the below seem reasonable for a switch. I was expecting it to be a bit cheaper considering its the same solicitor we used for the original mortgage 2 years ago. Its based in Dublin if that makes any difference.



Outlays


Land Registry Mortgage Registration fee
Land Registry Vacate of Current Mortgage
Fee for copy folio and filed plan
Law Search fees to Dublin Law Searchers Limited
Commissioner fees
Same day electronic Transfer fees
Fee to take up title document from lending Institution



Professional Fee
Office Outlays

Vat at 23%

Total





175.00

40.00

40.00
80.00

44.00
25.00
T.B.C.




750.00
150.00

207.00

1,511.00
I'd query what are "Outlays" €175 & what are "Office Outlays €150". Puch for the €175 to be taken out to reduce to €1,336.

No meself I didn’t go with them as I couldn’t find a way to contact them by email and my own solicitor was able to do every thing via email and post saving me taking time off work. Probably not in the best spirit of saving money but I was time poor
