I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased mum’s Will, with a bungalow in Sea Mills which is to be marketed. The house has never been registered at HMLR and I'm told that some purchasers will insist that it is completed before they will move forward. What's the mechanism for this?

In the circumstances that you have set out it seems prudent to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
