Accord is working with a limited panel of solicitors firms for Buy to Let business. One of these firms will be automatically allocated to the case during the application process to act on behalf of Accord and the applicant will be responsible for that firm's legal costs, VAT and expenses. The applicant may choose to instruct Accord's solicitors to act on their behalf as well. This is called joint representation.
Alternatively, the applicant may instruct their own solicitor. This is called separate representation. In this case, the applicant will be responsible for the legal costs, VAT and expenses of both their own solicitor and Accord's solicitors.
