Do I have to pop into the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Islington so that I can attend their offices when needed.

Whereas this was necessary twenty years ago, almost all mortgage companies no longer need their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide identification documents and there are still manifest benefits to instructing a local ayer, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Islington.

I have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Islington. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform UBS?

You must advise UBS before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that UBS 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 UBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a UBS conveyancing panel firm.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Islington. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

My sealed bid on a semi in Islington has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a property, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Islington. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Principality going?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Islington conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their solicitor to proceed with searches.

three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Islington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 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 premises 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.
