AssumingI was to acquire a freehold propertyin Beacontree Heath mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Beacontree Heath?
The sole reduction in fees you would make on is the disbursement for searches. Your solicitor is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, communicating with your vendors lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the property etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a charge but it won't be meaningful.

We had appointed conveyancers locally in Beacontree Heath on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further sum for handling the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Kent Reliance?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your property lawyer can charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Kent Reliance but by your Beacontree Heath conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Kent Reliance panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
My husband and I have arranged a further advance on our home loan from Yorkshire BS as we intend to carry out improvements to our house in Beacontree Heath. Are we obliged to choose a local Beacontree Heath solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Yorkshire BS would not normally require firms on their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Yorkshire BS list.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Beacontree Heath. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Beacontree Heath. Before diving in I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Beacontree Heath - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
