We previously selected conveyancers with offices in Dockland Settlement on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a supplemental sum for handling the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Coventry BS but by your Dockland Settlement conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Coventry BS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Dockland Settlement. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nottingham have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is Nottingham your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nottingham. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Nottingham where a lease fails to comply with these provisions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Dockland Settlement.
