I think someone else on here commented about this, but when I did what little Conveyancing I needed to do, to qualify, you had to give and receive undertakings from Solicitors to redeem Mortgages.

In the Law Society final s notes I recall that was one of the flags attached to pre completion steps / requisitions (written), please confirm that an undertaking will be given in the usual form of the Law Society Council that all mortgages will be redeemed on completion.

Was that not done here?
