I have paid off my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Trimdon conveyancing practitioner on the Clydesdale panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale 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 Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, 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 Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so

We are expecting to exchange on the purchase a house in Trimdon but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have agreed compensation from the current proprietors of five thousand pounds taking the form of a deduction in the price.

If you did not allow your solicitor to report the price change to your mortgage company then they would have no choice but to disinstructing themselves from representing you and the mortgage company.
