Intending to buy a house in Melton Mowbray. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Melton Mowbray solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.

I have been advised by a few selling agents in Melton Mowbray to find a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your lawyers rather than another?
We refuse to offer any financial incentive for sending work to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Melton Mowbray that you're thinking of instructing.
