I have paid off my mortgage with Nottingham. I assume I don't need a Llandudno property lawyer on the Nottingham panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Nottingham 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 Nottingham mortgage from the register. Nottingham, 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 Nottingham has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Nottingham has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I'm buying my first flat in Llandudno benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Llandudno I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Llandudno 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 home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
