I have paid off my mortgage with Lloyds. I assume I don't need a Houghton Regis lawyer on the Lloyds panel to discharge 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:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Lloyds has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Lloyds has instructed the Land Registry to do so

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Houghton Regis is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Houghton Regis you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
