I am planning to move property in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Paignton. Conveyancing lawyer was found before I stumbled across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the property agent but this should only occur when the previous owners solicitors inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. After that you will need to advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Paignton or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Paignton.
We previously appointed solicitors located in Paignton on the Bank of Ireland solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional amount for handling the Bank of Ireland mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Bank of Ireland?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Bank of Ireland but by your Paignton conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Bank of Ireland panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from UBS as we intend to conduct alterations to our property in Paignton. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Paignton solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
UBS don't usually appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the UBS conveyancing panel.

Me and my brother have a terraced Victorian property in Paignton. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Coventry Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Paignton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
