I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

The property lawyers conducting our conveyancing in Benllech has sent documents to review that show the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not registred at HMLR?
Although most properties in Benllech are now registered with HM Land Registry there are still a few that remain unregistered. Any property in Benllech that has been transferred since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HM Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Benllech property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Many Benllech conveyancing lawyers will be able to handle such matters but if any uncertainty exists the conventional guidance these days appears to be for the seller’s conveyancer to undertake the registration formalities first and subsequently sell - this will have a knock on effect to result in a significant delay.
