    Halifax fees help 6th Feb 18 at 8:45 PM
    Hoping for a bit of clarity on this one,

    We were looking to get a mortgage with Halifax, we got a DIP and the relevant checks were done. Our broker said we would pay £200 for a valuation fee, if and only if we get the mortgage amount agreed. Halifax came back offering to lend us less than the DIP and after a couple of appeals they rejected the final appeal to lend us the whole amount and my
    Broker started the process with precise. Iíve just checked my credit card statement and they have taken £195?
    Can someone clarify what this is for?

    Was a full application made to the Halifax for a mortgage?

    Was the property valued?
