Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Hither Green 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
