Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, thanks for your enquiry.
Have you spoken to the neighbours to see if they are in agreement to signing the necessary paperwork? Are your Buyers having a Mortgage?
Thanks for your reply.
Firstly, there is no real insurance policy which can be taken out to cover this situation.
As your Buyers are having a Mortgage, their Solicitor owes a duty to the Mortgage Lender to make sure the title to the property is clear and not defective. Hence, if part of the land his clients are purchasing is not registered in your Father's name, this does need to be rectified before they can complete. So, I am afraid you will need to bite the bullet and sort out the paperwork.
Sorry this is not the answer you were looking for, but as it is in the best interest of the neighbour to get the matter resolved,I would hope all parties will act swiftly to conclude matters.
