I was recommended to a conveyancer who has given a fee calculation of £1150 for leasehold conveyancing in Ashton In Makerfield. I am selling a Georgian property for £175,000. This sounds over the top. Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Ashton In Makerfield?

I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract yet Bank of Ireland will not permit this. Should they have been approached?
The conveyancer that is on a Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is required to inform Bank of Ireland of any variations to the sale price.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Ashton In Makerfield. I have a mortgage offer with Clydesdale. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
I currently have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in Ashton In Makerfield. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Nottingham?
Nottingham must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nottingham directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel lawyer.

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Ashton In Makerfield took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I'm buying my first flat in Ashton In Makerfield with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the side-deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
