Thanks for your enquiry.
If your Solicitor has registered everything at the Land Registry and the title is now in your name, you legally own the property and there is absolutely nothing else you or your Solicitor need to do.
I hope this answers your question, but please reply if you require any further clarification.
Thanks for your reply.
Not sure what stage you are at- If your Solicitor has registered the transfer at the Land Registry, then everything has already been completed? To register everything, your Grandmother must have signed a Land Registry Transfer document, transferring the property to you. Has she done this?
You mention that the Solicitor has lodged everything at the Land Registry, but he wouldn't be able to just submit a letter signed your Gran. If the Land Registry have received the documents, then I am guessing that as your Gran has agreed to forfeit her legacy and pass it to you, then what has happened is that the Administrator of the Estate has signed the necessary document transferring the property straight to you.
Has the Solicitor sent you a copy of the Land Registry Deeds (called the Title Information document)?
Thanks for clarifying things. Well, there is nothing else that needs to be done. You may wish to speak to an Accountant concerning CGT but that's all!
