We were about to choose a conveyancing solicitor in Somersham endorsed on your site but have come across alternative quotes on the internet appear less expensive – why is this?
There are a variety of conveyancers marketing what appear to be cut price. We suggest that you think long and hard about how much you respect your own move to want to be penny wise pound foolish concerning the standard of the conveyancing. Some hide extras well inside the terms of engagement. The conveyancers that we list for conveyancing in Somersham neverdo this.

We had instructed conveyancing lawyers locally in Somersham on the Principality solicitor panel. They have just billed me an additional fee for the legal aspects of the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Principality but by your Somersham conveyancer. Some firms on the Principality panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from Santander as we wish to conduct improvements to our property in Somersham. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Somersham solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Santander don't usually require a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander list.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Somersham with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with Alliance & Leicester . Is this normal?.
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.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
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.
My cousin has urged me to use his lawyers for conveyancing in Somersham. Do I follow his guidance?
There are no two ways about it it’s preferable to select a conveyancing practitioner is to seek feedback from friends or relatives who have used the firm that you are contemplating using.
The mortgage broker has suggested using their conveyancing practitioner for the conveyancing in Somersham - won’t it be better to just use them?
You need to establish if the estate agent is recommending a solicitor or introducing to a conveyancing practitioner. There are plenty of Somersham estate agents who recommend two or three Somersham conveyancing firms purely based on those lawyers offering a great service.
