There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

We had instructed conveyancers with offices in Milton on the Kent Reliance solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional charge for the legal aspects of the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Kent Reliance?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Kent Reliance but by your Milton property lawyer. Some firms on the Kent Reliance panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

Intending to buy a flat in Milton.

I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Are Barclays entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
