It is a dozen years since I purchased my property in Glan Conwy. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Glan Conwy involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.
