i dont think stamp duty is relevant the property was only 30K.
i was told by my solicitor that i was obliged to register the purchase with the inland revenue.
when i purchgased the property i did not have a solicitor acting on my behalf it was a rushed affair, where i trusted the seller and his solicitor. I think maybe because the solicitor was not acting on my behalf, he has done the bare minimum to conclude the sale ??
Yes i have the land registry copies showing me as the owner
