I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must leave my let out apartment in Hale by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. Can I complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into short term accommodation?

Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

Nearly all properties in Hale should show up. Have you tried a search with just the postcode. Normally it will disclose all the residences within that postcode. Where registered it will be there with a title number. Where they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The address might still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title deeds which might be with your parent’s lender.
