How long should a Discharge of Standard Security (mortgage)

This answer was rated:

How long should a Discharge of Standard Security (mortgage) (Scotland) take. I have been waiting 16 weeks, solicitor is not taking my calls or calling me back as being told by receptionist.
Thank you for your question.
The work involved is getting confirmation from the lender that the mortgage account has been redeemed and draft and having the lender sign a Discharge, then registering it in the Land Register.
Typically it should take 3 to 4 weeks.
Happy to discuss further.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
