It is a dozen years since I acquired my property in Immingham. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I am unable to locate the title deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Immingham involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
