My folks are experiencing problems in finding their Towyn property on the HMLR website. They have a vague recollection back in the 70’s when they acquired the bungalow there were complications concerning the post code not being identified on some systems.
Almost all residences in Towyn should show up. Have you endevoured to search with simply the postcode. Ordinarily it should identify all the premises inside the postcode. Assuming the property is registered it will be there with a title number. Where they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The address could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title deeds which might be with your parent’s lender.
