We had selected conveyancers located in Frenchay on the Co-operative solicitor approved list. They have just billed me an additional amount for the legal aspects of the Co-operative mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Co-operative?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may levy a fee for this.

The sale representative advised me not inform my conveyancer about this extras as it would affect my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
