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 Silverton property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
Do I need to be wary about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are recommending a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Silverton conveyancing firm?
As with lots of professional services, often input from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are lots of people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may put forward solicitors to select. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to appoint your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that many banks operate an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the lender aspect of your house move.
