We had instructed solicitors located in Wynyard on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They are now charging me a supplemental amount for the legal aspects of the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Clydesdale?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Clydesdale but by your Wynyard conveyancer. Some firms on the Clydesdale panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Wynyard is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Wynyard are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Wynyard you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wynyard may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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 premises.
