There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion.

This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

We had chosen conveyancing lawyers located in Page Green on the Lloyds solicitor panel. They are now charging me a supplemental sum for handling the Lloyds mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Lloyds?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer may charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Lloyds but by your Page Green conveyancer. Numerous firms on the Lloyds panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
