I'm the single beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Ferndown. The Ferndown property was put into my name in November. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this clause primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Co-operative. I assume I don't need a Ferndown conveyancer on the Co-operative panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

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:

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

It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Ferndown concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises 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.
