I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Oakdale solicitor on the Leeds Building Society panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

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

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Oakdale I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Oakdale for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

Am I right to be concerned that third parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Oakdale conveyancing firm?

As is the case with lots of professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are numerous people with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may put forward conveyancers to choose. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the right to appoint your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that the majority of mortgage providers operate an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the lender related work in your home move.
