Prior to recent changes, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if a second solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, however, can act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.Q.
