Legal fees are payable to your / our legal advisor on or before completion for carrying out work in relation to you taking out a mortgage.
For remortgage applications you can opt to use our nominated legal advisor for a fixed fee of £250. Under this shortened legal process the legal advisor will be acting on behalf of the Society.
Where a product includes a “free legal fees” package for remortgages, via our nominated solicitor, the Society will pay the legal fees to the nominated solicitor for a simplified “fast track” process. Under this process the solicitor will be acting on behalf of the Society and not on your behalf. Normal conveyancing checks will not be made as the applicants will already live in or own the property.
If there are any additional legal requirements or costs that are not covered by this “fast track” process then the “free legal fees” package may not be available and applicants will have to pay additional legal costs, including those incurred on behalf of the Society, to the solicitor.
Examples of these include the requirement for face to face or independent legal advice as a mortgage or product condition, changing names on title deeds, correcting title defects, postponement of charges and additional searches. Please contact us if you require more information on the circumstances where “free legal fees” will not apply.
For updates on applications that have been submitted and are being processed contact our Mortgage Department.
