If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Carbis Bay. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Carbis Bay - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
