Areas of Law / Property

A neighbouring property has been sold after the owner died. Because of a long-standing problem I need to know who the new owner is, but the sale has not been registered at the Land Registry. Surely this is illegal?

It can take up to three months for property transactions to show up on the Land Registry website. If the property has still not been registered after this time I suggest you contact the Land Registry for them to investigate. Occasionally it happens that solicitors fail to submit the forms, but this is rare and the new owner will usually make sure the records are updated, otherwise their ownership can be called into question.
