We previously selected conveyancing lawyers based in New Eltham on the Principality solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a separate fee for dealing with the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Principality but by your New Eltham lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Principality panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in New Eltham.

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the New Eltham conveyancing practitioner is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
