I have justbeen informed that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Sydenham for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sydenham conveyancing specialists.
