Recently contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Yiewsley who acted for me two years ago and wanted a conveyancing costs illustration based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of similar values with a home loan from Leeds Building Society. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper online firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The estimate does seem a tad overpriced. Where you are willing to invest time scrutinising charges you might trim some of the cost by as much as a hundred pounds. On the other hand, if you were pleased with the service the firm provided you maylive to regret choosing an an unknown lawyer.

My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Yiewsley. Conveyancing is needed. What happens now?
Now that you are legally bound yourself to purchase you must hire the services of a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of urgency as you are faced with a pending a fixed date to complete the transaction. An auction property should have an associated auction pack. This should include evidence of title and search results. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the conveyancing pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork pertinent to a leasehold property.

I currently have a mortgage with Bank of Ireland for my property in Yiewsley. Conveyancing was finalised a year 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 Bank of Ireland?
You must advise Bank of Ireland before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Bank of Ireland’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 Bank of Ireland directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel firm.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Bank of Ireland. Is it usual for Bank of Ireland to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Yiewsley is approved on their conveyancing panel? Bank of Ireland have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Bank of Ireland to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I am an executor of my recently deceased aunt’s Will, with a house in Yiewsley which is to be marketed. The house is unregistered at HMLR and I'm advised that many estate agents will insist that it is in place before they will proceed. What's the procedure for this?
In the situation you refer to it seems sensible to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
