We had appointed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Grasmere on the Kent Reliance solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a further charge for handling the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Kent Reliance?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor may charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Kent Reliance but by your Grasmere lawyer.

The CML Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease does not meet these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Grasmere.
