I am expecting a OIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Clapham and Salph End solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Clapham and Salph End solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
Intending to buy a flat in Clapham and Salph End. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. 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 Clapham and Salph End lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
