IS a min of £500 the norm now for a mortgage arrangement fee?

Have not bought a house for a while - I think it was £20 last time, or am I misremembering???????????/shock

The fees are ridiculous and do a good job digging into the savings made when switching rates ...

There is always the option of adding the costs to your mortgage hmm ....

No have dug out old paperwork - was £20!!! And a £20 reservation fee. They are willing to add to amount borrowed - for me to pay interest on for next 25 years!

Still think bankjob might be better bet

Just had a quote and with all the fees to go with our mortgage (not including the solicitors but including the surveyors) it's £1245. I think you got off lightly!
