The solicitors carrying out our conveyancing in Friday Hill has forwarded papers to review that show the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not currently recorded at HMLR?
Whilst most properties in Friday Hill are now registered with HM Land Registry there are still a few that remain unregistered. Any property in Friday Hill that has been transferred since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Friday Hill 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 Friday Hill conveyancing lawyers will be capable of dealing with such matters but in the event that uncertainty exists the conventional guidance nowadays is for the seller to address the registration formalities first and then sell - this will predictably cause a protracted home move.
