I was told by my financial advisor that I must appoint a conveyancer as part of the process. I spoke to my former Biggin Hill conveyancing practitioner who acted on my behalf when I originally bought the property. The costs illustration e-mailed to me of £470 is an eye-watering amount to do this as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.

We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Biggin Hill on the Kent Reliance solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a further charge for dealing with the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Kent Reliance?

The charge is not set by Kent Reliance but by your Biggin Hill conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Kent Reliance panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Co-operative. I assume I don't need a Biggin Hill conveyancer on the Co-operative panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Co-operative 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 Co-operative mortgage from the register. Co-operative, 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 Co-operative has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Co-operative has instructed the Land Registry to do so
