Have the mortgage deed to sign.

Solicitor asking for 600 pounds (+VAT) in legal fees (vs. the 300 they quoted) because of all the fuss. Most of the fuss was actually caused by them! (to be fair they have written off 200 quid as the original fees were 800 pounds!)
If only I could go back in time and sign up with a Newcastle based solicitor.

Letter from Solicitor listed the outstanding money I needed to pay before the transaction could complete (outstanding payment on house, stamp duty, Land Registry fee). No matter how I added things up I couldn't work out how they came to this figure. Phoned Solicitor (busy they will phone me back), phoned back, figure was incorrect as a result of incorrect calculation on their part.
