My grandfather passed away last year and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in West Wickham. The house had a small mortgage remaining of approximately £5k. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Clydesdale, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?

If you have finished paying off your TSB 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 TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take.

Do I require chancel insurance when purchasing a residence in West Wickham? or Apparently there is historic law that could mean that homeowners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to contribute towards maintenance towards the chancel within the church.
