I have paid off my mortgage with Santander. I assume I don't need a Chelmsley Wood lawyer on the Santander panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Santander mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly.

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 Santander has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and

I currently have a mortgage with TSB for my property in Chelmsley Wood. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform TSB?

You should contact TSB directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a TSB conveyancing panel lawyer.
