Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Glenfield relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
