I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Hurst Green off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with TSB. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.

I believe he will simply be asked to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the property lawyer however he is anxious it will frustrate the sale of the apartment. Is it worth updating the land title documents for the house?
It is not absolutely necessary to update the register as long as you have the evidence needed to show how the change of name resulted.
Any buyer’s solicitor will check the land registry entries and requisition evidence to prove the name change for example marriage certificates.
