We had selected solicitors locally in Hampton on the Bank of Ireland solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional amount for the legal aspects of the Bank of Ireland mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Bank of Ireland?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner can charge a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Bank of Ireland but by your Hampton property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Bank of Ireland panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Hampton. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Principality?
You must advise Principality prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let 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 Principality directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Principality conveyancing panel solicitor.

three months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Hampton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 residence 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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Hampton I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hampton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
