We had instructed solicitors locally in Flint on the Co-operative solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further charge for the legal aspects of the Co-operative mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Co-operative?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Co-operative but by your Flint solicitor. Numerous firms on the Co-operative panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Flint on 10/10/2022, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Property lawyer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Bank of Ireland and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Are Bank of Ireland entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Bank of Ireland to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Flint agreed to, the vendors do however have an associated purchase. The vendors have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Flint. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Co-operative?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Flint conveyancing search costs, etc).
