We previously instructed conveyancers locally in Wickford on the Nationwide solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further charge for handling the Nationwide mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Nationwide?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor can levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Nationwide but by your Wickford conveyancer. Some firms on the Nationwide panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

The reason why TSB 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.
