Hello, I am sorry but I specifically asked about the financial advisors fee only. I expect to loose the mortgage companies booking fee plus other application fees. The financial advisor I used had a fee of £299 for her services which had nothing to do with the mortgage lender they would have paid also if the mortgage had completed. The financial advisors fee would have been paid by the solicitor had the mortgage completed. I have not paid this fee to date and wanted to know whether I was legally bound to pay this bill. I have bought a fair number of properties over the years and this is the first time that I have been pestered for the financial advisors fee. In fact only last year I was helping my children purchase a house which fell through the advisors fee was not asked for or paid.
