Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Melton Mowbray

I have just been advised by my IFA that my Melton Mowbray the law firm I have appointed is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be certain that this is indeed the case?

The best course of action for you to take is to call your Melton Mowbray conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Melton Mowbray conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.

My house in Melton Mowbray is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Will the property lawyer need to be required to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Melton Mowbray lawyer on the RBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

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

Clydesdale have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a flat in Melton Mowbray has been accepted, what happens next?

The estate agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (make sure the lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Contact Clydesdale or the financial adviser and complete any appropriate documentation. Clydesdale will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or vendor to schedule an appointment.
