The fact that your lawyer is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

I have paid off my mortgage with HSBC. I assume I don't need a Blakenhall property lawyer on the HSBC panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your HSBC 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 HSBC mortgage from the register. HSBC, 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:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where HSBC has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. HSBC has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your HSBC mortgage has been paid off.
