This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Kelsall. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Kelsall?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Kelsall. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be able to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
Can you point me to a directory of Aldermore panel conveyancers in Kelsall on the Building Society Association’s Website?

A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings open the public over the internet. Where you are in need of a Kelsall conveyancer on the Aldermore please make the most of our facility.
I have paid off my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Kelsall lawyer on the TSB panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your TSB 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 TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, 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 TSB has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- TSB has instructed the Land Registry to do so

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Kelsall I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Kelsall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
