Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. The Land Registration Act only came into force after 2002. That means that anyone sitting on certain that have never bought or sold, have never had to register their land. You will need find a solicitor that knows how to buy and sell unregistered land and establish in the property - once you have completed the purchase, the registration of the land is compulsory. You will have the following: (i) hopefully documentation showing the history of the property (ii) A full title guarantee from the buyers as they are required to give me statute. If the buyers cannot give full title guarantee your solicitor should be able to advise you. Bare in mind that many newly qualified lawyers have no need for the skill of selling unregistered land, therefore solicitors with this experience are becoming less frequent.
Hi, If the sellers have all the paper work showing their purchase of the property and the supporting deeds, you should be able to apply for Title Absolute.
