    Interest on Mortgage before completion 20th Mar 17 at 8:03 AM
    Hi, I recently bought a new property. Unsurprisingly the process wasn't as smooth as I hoped.
    There was a delay between our initial completion date & when we actually completed, therefore, I have been charged interest on the mortgage funds that were sat in my Solicitor's account before being resent back to the lender (Santander).

    I have been charded 8% over 4 days.

    My question is am I actually liable for that bill?

    Thank you

    Yes.

    Of course, if you believe someone else is responsible for the delay, you can ask them to stump up, etc.
