What Are The Final Documents I Receive That Proves Ownership

Recommended Posts

HI

I am buying a freehold house and it will complete tomorrow. I am a first time buyer and does not have any experience on it.

I want to ask how many document I will have eventually to prove the ownership of the property. Some of my friends told me there are two but they are not sure.

Can someone help?

Regards,

Kevin

A letter from your solicitor.

Are you buying for cash? If you aren't the important bits will go to the mortgage company

The entry in the Land Register is your proof of title. You can obtain copies of the entry but the copy is not the proof of title, it is the entry in the register itself. So in answer to your question there isn't a document proving ownership.

The link kindly provided is to a private company who derive their revenue and profit by charging to provide copies. You can obtain copies of title direct from the land registry on payment of a small fee.

In the UK whilst it is not essential to use a solicitor or licensed conveyancer when you purchase a property it is wise to use one as they will confirm that title is transferred to you. This link will take you to a practice note on the Land Registry site that may help you understand the procedures adopted to minimise property and registration fraud.

And if they don't you've got a pretty cast-iron comeback in law - conveyancing is one thing every solicitor is supposed to be able to do in his sleep!
