Hi, when was this done?
Hi, thanks for your reply. Well, if it was 21 years ago, the Solicitor should have registered the transaction at the Land Registry, and in turn, the Land Registry should have registered you as the owner of the property. Nowadays, "the Deeds" to a property are stored electronically at the Land Registry and these can be downloaded by anyone .
A copy of the Deeds is all that is required to sell the property and is evidence that the owner of the property is indeed the owner. I can check if the Deeds are registered at the Land Registry if you can provide your address.
I hope this helps? Kind Regards Al
Hi, sorry for delay. Please give me a few minutes and I will come back to you. Al
Hi, I'm afraid Number 93 is the only property in the road not registered at the Land Registry! You therefore need to track down where the paper Title Deeds are. Not sure if the law firm you used is still in existence, but if they are, you need to check with them. Otherwise, they could be lodged with your Mum's Bank or failing that, in her house!
Sorry I haven't been able to give you a positive answer, but if I have helped, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer in the top right hand corner of your screen. Kind Regards Al
Thanks. If you could rate my answer, that would be appreciated. Kind Regards Al
Hi, if the gifting document isn't with the other Deeds, your Mother can ask a Solicitor to prepare the Transfer document now. All the best. Al
Hi, well I can confirm number 93 is not registered at the Land Registry. So, you will need to get a new Transfer drawn up and signed. Kind Regards Al
