When it comes to mortgage companies such as Nationwide, do Blakeney lawyers have to pay an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
My partner and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Nationwide as we wish to carry out renovations to our property in Blakeney. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Blakeney solicitor on the Nationwide conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Nationwide don't usually require a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
