It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Rudry. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to locate the title documents. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with the lender or they could be archived with the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly the chances are 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 acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Rudry relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
I used Arc property Solicitors a few years past for my conveyancing in Rudry. Now, I need my documents but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?
