This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a ground floor flat in Little Ilford. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Little Ilford?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Little Ilford.

Is it the case that all Little Ilford solicitor practices on the RBS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

I have paid off my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Little Ilford conveyancer on the TSB panel to remove 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.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Little Ilford ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks tend refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you contact us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Little Ilford. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Little Ilford to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
