We had appointed solicitors located in Wool on the Nottingham solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further charge for dealing with the Nottingham mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Nottingham?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner can charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Nottingham but by your Wool lawyer. Numerous firms on the Nottingham panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.
My partner and I have organised the release of further monies on our home loan from RBS as we intend to conduct improvements to our house in Wool. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Wool solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

I've found a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a reasonable price which is making it all the more appealing. I have just discovered that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are particular concerns purchasing a leasehold house in Wool. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Wool ?
The majority of houses in Wool are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can help the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Wool so you should seriously consider shopping around for a Wool conveyancing solicitor and be sure that they are used to advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. Being a lessee you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the landlord’spermission to carry out changes to the property. You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the upkeep of the communal areas where the house is part of an estate. Your lawyer will appraise you on the various issues.
