Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beaminster

It is 10 years ago since I bought my house in Beaminster. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to locate my deeds. Will this cause complications?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Beaminster relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the number one cause of hinderance in Beaminster house deals. Is there any truth in this?
