Hit a small but trivial issue with divorce/equity transfer.

The solicitor for the mortgage company are saying there is a ~£150 indemnity policy to for to protect the lender for the transfer of equity.  This makes no sense as there is a sealed court order being followed from the divorce/family court.  Should I be challenging this or is this always needed.  We started the transfer prior to the consent order being sealed but they know its sealed/official now so not sure what the indemnity will cover!

Anyone ever had this?
