As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Aldermore but by your Wavertree conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Aldermore panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

How does conveyancing in Wavertree differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Wavertree approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Wavertree usually buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wavertree or who has acted in the same development.
