When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers should consider that, recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in higher legal costs for buyers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed.

In the event that no appropriate consents be available your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of the best alternative which can include seeking an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective approval from Bradford local authority.
