Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
You can satisfy the locksmith by obtaining a copy of the land registry deeds - which you can do online, everybody can, here: www.landregistry.gov.uk
Are you there?
Yes. Will I be able to print a copy off to show the locksmith?
Yes, you will. It will show you both as joint owners and then you just have to show them photo ID to prove you're that person.
That's great. I can't understand why the solicitor holding the deeds couldn't have told me that instead of saying they needed both of our signatures
It's a little worrying isn't it!
I hope this proves useful!
