I am assisting my step-mother sell her house in East Barnet. Will the conveyancing solicitor commission an energy performance certificate or it is for me to coordinate?

After the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a compulsory part of selling a property.

I happen to be the only recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in East Barnet. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this requirement principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Nottingham. I assume I don't need a East Barnet solicitor 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:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Nottingham has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Nottingham has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Nottingham mortgage has been paid off.
