My a decade ago. He has been wed, widowed and in recent months got married again. He now wants to dispose of the Grimsby property. I suspect that he will just be asked to supply copies of the marriage certificates to the conveyancer however he is anxious it will frustrate the home move. Is it worth updating the Land Registry documents for the property?

It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property providing you have the evidence required to demonstrate how the name change has come about.

The buyer’s solicitor will review the title details and need evidence by way of proof of the name change for example marriage certificates.
