We previously selected solicitors based in Edgwarebury on the Co-operative solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further sum for handling the Co-operative mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Co-operative?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Co-operative but by your Edgwarebury lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Co-operative panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Edgwarebury. Before I get started I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Edgwarebury - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
