It is is a decade since I acquired my house in Hatton. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I am unable to track down the title deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Hatton involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.
