It is is a decade since I bought my house in Isle of Dogs. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I can't track down the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Isle of Dogs involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as RBS, do Isle of Dogs conveyancing practitioners incur a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We previously instructed solicitors locally in Isle of Dogs on the UBS solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a further fee for handling the UBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by UBS?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by UBS but by your Isle of Dogs solicitor. Numerous firms on the UBS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Isle of Dogs. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. If I am intending 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 Coventry BS?
Coventry BS must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’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 Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel lawyer.

If so you need to advise them of the new contact details and have the loan are issued to the new lawyers.
