A selection of banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

We previously selected solicitors based in Caernarfon on the UBS solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further amount for the legal aspects of the UBS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by UBS?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by UBS but by your Caernarfon solicitor. Numerous firms on the UBS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Caernarfon concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 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 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.
I am 17 days into a leasehold purchase having been directed to a firm by the local agent to carry out the conveyancing in Caernarfon. We are not happy. Can you help me find new conveyancers?

In the event that it has you need to make them aware of the replacement conveyancer and have the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new conveyancer should be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental expenses and delays. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors.
