I am not sure when they sent the deeds....it would have been approx. 2006
I took out the mortgage in 1968 and have lived here since then
What is your concern? getting the property registered?
My wife and I recently divorced, and we wish to put our property into trustees' deed ship, so that our both partners (or their siblings) will not be able to claim it.....it's in the hands of a solicitor and she wants to have the deeds to finish.....but she wants over £1,000 extra to replace the lost deeds....I was hoping to do it on my own for a much lesser fee!
Tobe honest, if she wants £1000 for registering a property for which the deedshave been lost and she will do it for a fixed fee, that I would get my chequebook out.
Itis about as much do it yourself job as removing your own appendix blindfoldedand not all solicitors are capable of doing it either. You are going to have toswear statutory declarations as to ownership and use.
This situation is not at all uncommon and theland registry therefore have put together this useful guide which will pointyou in the right direction http://www.landregistry.gov.uk/professional/guides/practice-guide-2
Does that answer the question? Can I assistfurther or answer any specific queries?
