I am making my final payment to clear my mortgage next month and was wondering do I need a solicitor to tie things up? The house was built in the late eighties and is on the land registry and has no deeds. From my limited dealings with solicitors I reckon they are a devious lot of bloodsucking ******* but then I may have only met the good ones. I would be interested to hear from any members who have paid off their mortgage and did or did NOT use a solicitor to tidy things up. If you did use them, what was the cost? I am fortunate enough to live south of Hadrian's wall so any actions will be under English law.
