As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
My partner and I have recently had an offer accepted on a flat and had an appointment on Wednesday with HSBC for the mortgage. They warned us that when it comes to choosing a property lawyer that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancers then we will have to pay out an extra fee of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to select a solicitor to act for them in addition to the one we appoint for ourselves and we are liable for their costs. I have requested HSBC to send me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved lawyers but was told that I need to check with each individual lawyer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?
Ask HSBC what their panel criteria is for a solicitor.Thereafter ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for HSBC previously. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with HSBC.
