I suspect that he will simply be requested to supply copies of the marriage certificates to the lawyer however he is anxious it will delay the sale of the property. Should he instruct a lawyer to update the title details for the house?

It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property providing you have the proof needed to show how the name change occurred.

Any buyer’s conveyancer should review the title details and ask for evidence by way of proof of the change of name for example marriage documentation.
