Q.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if the lender insists upon their own solicitor . We will act for the majority of lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.
