Hi there, I was wondering if anyone had succeeded in getting any redress from Aaen Peach. Like many on this forum, we received a quote from hbcconveyancing of about £600 for the purchase of a property. Now we've received an estimate of £1300 (700 of this is fees) and £500 is 'payments to third parties' although about 500 of that 300 is in fact payments to them (making their conveyancing fee £1000 so far.) There have been no issues so far with the purchase of the property (which is under 100k.) Now we've received a letter to sign, giving them the authority to act for our mortgage lender. The language of the Standard Security gives the impression that their exhaustive attention on behalf of our lender is a future excuse to charge us more... Here is their approximate costings so far, Legal Fee £380 Chaps Fee £55 Dealing with Mortgage Lender (Standard Security) £250 Post & Incidental Communication Charges £60 Total Legal Fee 745 and then... third party payments Registration Costs 120 Registration of Standard Security 60 Registration of Advance Notice 10 ... *ahem* Completion and submission of registration documentation £216 ... Completion & Submission of Advance Notice 54 The ... above two are surely conveyancing fees? they were evasive on the phone and didn't go to any particular lengths to assure me regarding a cap, or expected cost. Now I've got to sign this document which may give them greater power to thrust charges at a moments notice. I've got only about 4 - 5 weeks left before handover. I guess I'm just asking for advice, but also, if anyone has been burnt, is there much chance of redress?
