It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Harlech conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Harlech lawyer on the TSB panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

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

Harry (my fiance) and I may need to sub-let our Harlech 1st floor flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Harlech conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Notwithstanding that your previous Harlech conveyancing solicitor is no longer available you can review your lease to check if you are permitted to let out the property. The rule is that if the deeds are silent, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you are obliged to seek permission from your landlord or other appropriate person before subletting. This means that you cannot sublet without first obtaining permission. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably withheld. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord for their consent.
