I'm purchasing my first flat in Teddington with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about this extras as it would impact my loan with National Westminster Bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

Me and my fiance have recently had an offer accepted on a apartment and had meeting on Friday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They advised me that when it comes to choosing a lawyer that unless they are on their approved panel of lawyers then we will have to pay out an additional fee of £200. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to appoint a solicitor to act on their behalf in addition to the one we appoint for ourselves and we assume responsibility for their fees. I have requested Leeds Building Society to supply me with a list so I can obtain estimates only from their approved solicitors but was told that I need to check with each individual lawyer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a list online?
