It is is a decade since I bought my house in Lincolnshire. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your lender or they could still be with the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Lincolnshire involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Lincolnshire.
