Whilst the vast majorities of properties in Frognal are now registered with HM Land Registry there are still some that remain unregistered. Any property in Frognal that has been purchased since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HMLR under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Frognal property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Many Frognal conveyancing solicitors will be familiar with such matters but where uncertainty reigns the conventional advice presently seems to be for the current owners to undertake the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the sale conveyance - this this chain of events will cause a prolonged conveyancing.
