You will need to use a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the legal work required when you require a mortgage to purchase your home. They will conduct all the essential due diligence on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in place.

Lender panel applications may be submitted, so if your solicitor has not historically sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

My mother completed her conveyancing in Marple ten years ago. She has since got married, divorced and is now married again. She wishes to sell the property next moths. I believe she will simply be requested to provide a copy of her marriage certificates to the lawyer however she is worried it could delay the sale of the house. Should she instruct a lawyer to update the Land Registry information for the property?

It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register on the basis that you have the evidence required to show how the name change occurred.

Any buyer’s conveyancing practitioner will examine the land registry information and require evidence to prove the change of name for instance marriage certificates.
