Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Frizington 10 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?
You no longer need to have the physical deeds to evidence that you are the owner of your registered land or property, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Frizington I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Frizington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
