We are purchasing a property with Santander, is there anything I need to know?


Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if their conveyancing solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's costs.


Do I need to use a law firm referred by my local agent?


Estate agent referrals are a common route to find a solicitor. Such referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
