I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Skipton. I assume I don't need a Goring lawyer on the Skipton panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Skipton 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 Skipton mortgage from the register. Skipton, 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 Skipton has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Skipton has instructed the Land Registry to do so

Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Yorkshire BS will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Goring.

I am purchasing a new build house in Goring with a loan from Bank of Scotland. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about this deal as it could impact my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
