They have just invoiced me a separate fee of £195 for the legal aspects of the Beverley Building Society mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Beverley Building Society?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitors can charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Beverley Building Society but by your lawyers.
