The deeds to my property are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Solihull 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be evidenced by HMLR under a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and order current copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business property in Solihull and how can your lawyers assist?

There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act to your advantage and assist with commercial conveyancing in Solihull

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Solihull. Conveyancing and Godiva Mortgages Ltd mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing practitioner in Solihull who acted for me is not around. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a Solihull conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
