It is 10 years ago since I acquired my property in Magor. Conveyancing lawyers have just been retained on the sale but I can't find the title deeds. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Magor involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent advised that the owners will only issue a contract if we use the agent's chosen lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Magor
We suspect that the owner is not behind this ultimatum. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to use your own,trusted Magor conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a commission or achieve conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
