We had chosen solicitors with offices in Coombe Dingle on the Yorkshire BS solicitor panel. They have just billed me an additional fee for handling the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Yorkshire BS?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Coombe Dingle conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
It is unclear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Coombe Dingle building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Coombe Dingle conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
As long as the lawyer is on the mortgage company panel, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
