Q.

We are buying with Saffron Building Society - what will I need to know?

A.

When purchasing with a mortgage, the lender will require legal work to be carried out. Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers in cases where the conveyancing solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We are able to act for all major lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's legal costs.
