The conveyancing solicitors handling our conveyancing in Linton has sent papers to review that reveal that the land is unregistered with epitome documents. How can it be that the property not registred at HM Land Regsitry?

Whilst the vast majorities of properties in Linton are now registered with the Land Registry there are still some that are unregistered. Any property in Linton that has been remortgaged since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Linton property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Many Linton conveyancing solicitors will be familiar with this type of conveyancing but in the event that uncertainty reigns the usual recommendation presently is for the vendor’s solicitor to deal with the registration formalities first and thereafter sell - this can though naturally result in a drawn-out transaction.
