Hi I take it that the Deeds are not registered at the Land Registry and you have given your Solicitor all the Unregistered Deeds that you can find?
Thanks. Well, your Solicitor should know this, but it does not matter that you have been unable to locate the Mortgage Deed. Your Solicitor will need to carry out a Land Charges search against your Dad's name and this reveals if any Bank or Building Society have a Charge over the property. On the basis that the Mortgage has been paid off, this result will be clear and that will be good enough evidence to your Buyers Solicitor that there is indeed no Mortgage on the property!
I hope this helps and clarifies the position.
If so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
Thanks! All the best Al
