I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Hungerford conveyancing practitioner on the UBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your UBS 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 UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, 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 UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your UBS mortgage has been paid off.
