It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Westgate on Sea. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find my title documents. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the mortgage company or they may still be with the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Westgate on Sea relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Westgate on Sea
Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan.
