I have paid off my mortgage with Skipton. I assume I don't need a Kennington lawyer on the Skipton panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Skipton 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 Skipton mortgage from the register. Skipton, 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 Skipton has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Skipton has instructed the Land Registry to do so

The property agent will wish to be informed of your conveyancing practitioner's details (be sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Call up Clydesdale or your financial adviser and complete any outstanding documentation. Clydesdale will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or vendor to book an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Clydesdale will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Kennington.

I am purchasing my first flat in Kennington benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Kennington. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Kennington - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
