We had instructed conveyancing lawyers based in Hope Valley on the UBS solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a supplemental fee for handling the UBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by UBS?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your lawyer may levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by UBS but by your Hope Valley conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the UBS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

Barclays would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Barclays list.

five months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Hope Valley concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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.

My conveyancers in Hope Valley have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?

That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
