We previously chose solicitors located in Hartford on the Co-operative solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further sum for dealing with the Co-operative mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Co-operative?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions 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 Hartford conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Co-operative panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.
How can we tell if a Hartford conveyancing solicitor on the HSBC panel is any good?

We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer handling your transaction.
I am buying a property in Hartford. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Principality 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 Principality your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Principality. The CML Handbook sets out minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Principality where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Hartford.
How does conveyancing in Hartford differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hartford approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Hartford tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hartford or who has acted in the same development.
