You will encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage.

My in 2005. He has since got wed, divorced and is now married again. He will be selling the property this June. I believe he will just be asked to supply copies of his marriage certificates to the solicitor however he is concerned it will hold up the sale of the property. Should he instruct a conveyancing practitioner to update the land title information for the property?

You are not required to update the register on the basis that you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the change of name resulted.

The purchaser’s conveyancing practitioner should check the title entries and need evidence to prove the name change e.g. marriage documentation.
