Thanks for your reply.

I'm afraid that as your relative will be having a Mortgage, you will both need to instruct separate Solicitors, so there is no question of any conflict of interest- the Mortgage Lender will insist upon this.

(If your relative was not having a Mortggae, the same Solicitor could act for you both provided he was happy there was no conflict of interests).

Sorry this isn't the answer you were looking for!

Kind Regards
