Can you point me to a directory of Kent Reliance panel conveyancers in Coombe Warren on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Kent Reliance. I assume I don't need a Coombe Warren solicitor on the Kent Reliance panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Kent Reliance 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 Kent Reliance mortgage from the register. Kent Reliance, 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 Kent Reliance has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Kent Reliance has instructed the Land Registry to do so
It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in Coombe Warren completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 asset 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.
Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Coombe Warren with the aim of expediting the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Coombe Warren can be avoided where you instruct lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ solicitors. If there is a history of any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is an ongoing dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as over as opposed to unsettled. Many freeholders or Management Companies in Coombe Warren levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the fee that they propose to charge. The management information sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Coombe Warren. If you have carried out any alterations to the residence would they have required Landlord’s permission? In particular have you installed wooden flooring? Coombe Warren leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or laying down wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord consenting to such works. If you dont have the paperwork to hand do not communicate with the landlord without checking with your conveyancer first. If you are supposed to have a share in the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share certificate. Organising a replacement share certificate is often a time consuming formality and delays many a Coombe Warren conveyancing transaction. If a duplicate share is required, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity.
Following months of negotiations we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Coombe Warren. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Coombe Warren conveyancing firm who can help.

My mother purchased her house in Coombe Warren in 2005. She has been married, widowed and has recently remarried. She now wishes to the sell the Coombe Warren property. I suspect that she will simply be requested to supply copies of the marriage papers to the conveyancer but she is worried it will delay the sale of the house. Is it worth updating the title information for the property?
It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register providing you have the evidence needed to show how the name change resulted.
The buyer’s lawyer will review the land registry entries and request evidence to establish the change of name for instance marriage certificates.
