I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Norwood Green lawyer on the UBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your UBS 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 UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, 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 UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Norwood Green I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Norwood Green for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
Should I instruct a Norwood Green conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am buying? I have an old university friend who can carry out the legal work but her office is a couple of hundredmiles away.
The benefit of a local Norwood Green conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign documents, hand in your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and they were impressed that should outweigh using an unknown Norwood Green conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being local.
