I have a mortgage with Kent Reliance for my property in Treuddyn. 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 Kent Reliance?
You must advise Kent Reliance prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’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 Kent Reliance directly. You need not do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel firm.
After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Treuddyn. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their solicitor. I paid an upfront payment of £175. A couple of days later, the property lawyer contacted me to say that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I have instructed a Treuddyn conveyancing practitioner having checked that they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Bank of Ireland will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Bank of Ireland will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Treuddyn postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Treuddyn.
3 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Treuddyn concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 property 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.

The property agent suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this extras as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

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.
Am I right to be concerned about brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm rather than a local Treuddyn conveyancing firm?
As is the case with lots of service providers, often input from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are numerous parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all put forward solicitors to appoint. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to appoint your own lawyer. You need to be aware that many mortgage providers have an approved list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.
