It is a dozen years since I bought my home in Tiverton. Conveyancing solicitors have now been retained on the sale but I am unable to find the title deeds. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be with the lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Tiverton involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
