We had selected conveyancers with offices in Shinfield and Arborfield on the Skipton solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further amount for the legal aspects of the Skipton mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Skipton?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer can levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Skipton but by your Shinfield and Arborfield conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the Skipton panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
We were going to get a DIP from RBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Shinfield and Arborfield solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Shinfield and Arborfield. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
I am purchasing my first flat in Shinfield and Arborfield benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my solicitor about this deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
