No Proof, there are no legal documents linking them to that alias other than the property deeds.
I'm not sure why.
The quetsion is:
If they change their name to the alias the house was bought under, legally, will they have any problems selling the property?
Thanks for the comprehensive answer.
if the person changed their name and had passport, utility bill, driving license etc.. Why would the solicitor have any reason to think that the person who is not who they say they are or that they had another identity?
What checks would the solicitor carry that would flag up a recent change of name and if there are checks then how routinely are they carried out?
If the person cannot do this and cannot show any evidence of old alias then what will happen to the property? Say for example if this person died? The death certificate would not show the alias and therefore the property would still belong to an alias that cannot be proved to be anything other than alive.
