We previously selected conveyancers based in Whimple on the Barclays solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a separate sum for handling the Barclays mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Barclays?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Barclays but by your Whimple conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Barclays panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Whimple

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
