You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent.

I have paid off my mortgage with Lloyds. I assume I don't need a Openshaw property lawyer on the Lloyds panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

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

The deeds to my property are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Openshaw 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?

In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to look for all the appropriate paperwork so you may purchase or sell your house without a hitch. Where duplicates are not available, your conveyancer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on the premises.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Openshaw I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Openshaw in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
