Britain's biggest mortge lender is branching out by offering homebuyers a fixed fee conveyancing service.
By doing so it is leveraging its dominant market position into a market estimated to be valued at about £780 million a year.
Customers using the Halifax conveyancing service will be referred to one of a panel of selected legal practices which will undertake the legal work and provide impartial, confidential and independent legal advice.
Fees range from £299 for properties valued at less than £50,000 up to £799 for properties valued between £401,000-£500,000.
Nigel Payne, head of the Halifax conveyancing service, said: "Providing home related legal products is a natural extension to our role as the country's leading mortgage provider."
