Hi there,

 

Thanks for your enquiry.

 

On the basis that the Deeds are registered at the Land Registry, you can apply on line for a copy of the Deeds. If there is a Mortgage registered, this will be shown in the Charges Register.

 

Here is the link- www.landregistryservices.com

 

On the homepage,please request "Title Register". There is a small fee payable.

 

I hope this answers your question and if so, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.

 

Kind Regards

AL
