It is 10 years ago since I purchased my home in Buckhurst Hill. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to locate my title documents. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Buckhurst Hill involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
