My in 2008. He has got married, widowed and is now remarried. He will be marketing the property next summer. I suspect that he will simply be requested to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the conveyancer however he is worried it will hold up the sale of the apartment. Should he instruct a lawyer to update the land title documents for the house?

It is not absolutely necessary to update the register on the basis that you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the name change occurred.

Any buyer’s lawyer will check the registered details and request evidence to establish the change of name for example marriage documentation.
