wingrovebuyer :

Hello. Can you give s few more details please ie has it been signed and dated?

Customer:

yes it has been signed and dated

Customer:

hi are you online ?

Customer:

hello

wingrovebuyer :

Ok, thanks. When was it dated?

Customer:

31/01/12

wingrovebuyer :

Thanks. Transfers don't "expire" as such, but they should be sent to Land Registry within 3 months of completion. Technically, if it isn't, the transferee is said to own the property involved on trust for the transferor. However, if you send it to Land Registry now, they'd still register it and this problem would be overcome.

Customer:

so that would be it then , the problem would be sorted

wingrovebuyer :

Yes - best to get it in for registration ASAP.

Customer:

and I would own the beneficial interest again

wingrovebuyer :

Yes

wingrovebuyer :

You would "perfect" the title.

Customer:

but the solicitor that was acting on behalf of the official receiver said that I would have to start all over again do you think this is correct

wingrovebuyer :

No. If you send it to Land Registry, they will just register it. As soon as itis registered, it fixes the problem.

Customer:

so I need to fill out the ap1 and send that with the tr1 ??

wingrovebuyer :

That's right. Hope this helps!

Customer:

ok thanks so it deffinatly dosnt expire??

wingrovebuyer :

Not as such but it needs to be registered.

wingrovebuyer :

It should have been registered within 3 months but it can be registered after that and the problem resolved.

wingrovebuyer :

Land Registry will not refuse to register it.

Customer:

I understand I just wanted to be clear that the information that she gave wasn't correct and I can still register my ownership with a 2 year old form

Customer:

its just been found and I thought it had been sent

wingrovebuyer :

No problem - best wishes. Please leave a rating.

Customer:

thankyou I will leave good feedback

wingrovebuyer :

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
