I have paid off my mortgage with Nationwide. I assume I don't need a Appleton lawyer on the Nationwide panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Nationwide mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Nationwide mortgage from the register. Nationwide, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Nationwide has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Nationwide has instructed the Land Registry to do so

Just acquired a terraced house in Appleton , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Appleton conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration is addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Appleton is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any other parties. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I was pointed in your direction by numerous selling agents in Appleton to get a quote from a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services ahead of another?
We refuse to give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
We're FTB’s - agreed a price, but the agent has warned us that the vendor will only move forward if we use the agent's preferred solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Appleton
It is highly unlikely the vendors are driving this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your own,trusted Appleton conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
I was told by my bank that their panel conveyancers operate no completion no charge basis for conveyancing in Appleton. I had a purchase fall through yet the solicitors want search fees! They are stating that the fees are independent!
Appleton conveyancing search fees are disbursements not solicitors costs as these are paid to a third party.
