My husband and I have arranged the release of further monies on our mortgage from TSB as we intend to carry out improvements to our property in Newton Longville. Do we need to appoint a high street Newton Longville solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
TSB do not ordinarily instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB list.
I have paid off my mortgage with Nationwide. I assume I don't need a Newton Longville lawyer on the Nationwide panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Nationwide 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 Nationwide mortgage from the register. Nationwide, 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 Nationwide has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Nationwide has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I have finally had an offer on a maisonette in Newton Longville agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Newton Longville. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Co-operative?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Newton Longville conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your property lawyer is on the Co-operative approved list. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with Co-operative and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Newton Longville.
The deeds to our property can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Newton Longville 4 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
