We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers locally in North Plymouth on the Principality solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further charge for handling the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Principality?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Principality but by your North Plymouth conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Principality panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Principality are being difficult. The North Plymouth solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Principality are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
