My grandmother passed away 10 months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Southfields. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Principality, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?
If you plan to refinance then Principality will require that you use a conveyancer on the Principality conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Principality conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Principality mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Southfields I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Southfields suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
