We were just about to exchange contracts for a property in Great Shelford. We encountered a snag. Our mortgage offer with Halifax expires on 1/10/2021 but the sellers are putting forward a completion date of 5/10/2021. Is it possible to prolong the loan expiry date?

I have been told that property searches are the main cause of delay in Great Shelford conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

Searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Great Shelford.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Great Shelford 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
As long as the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be held by HMLR with a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and secure up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.
