We had chosen solicitors located in Eltham on the Aldermore solicitor panel. They have just billed me a supplemental amount for the legal aspects of the Aldermore mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Aldermore?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer may levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Aldermore but by your Eltham property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Aldermore panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Coventry BS are being pedantic. The Eltham solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Coventry BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I had an offer accepted on a house in Eltham on 21/2/2020, valuation was booked 2 days after, all came back fine. Property lawyer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
