Selling my Flat - problem with Freehold Title deeds
Can anyone please shed light on issues raised by buyers' solicitors. They say they need up to date copies of the Freehold title deeds. The copies they have been supplied are backdated which (they say) implies there is a pending application of some sort with the Land Registry effecting the Freehold Title. Does anyone know what this means and whether it likely to be a major issue in the sale? I didn't think title deeds could be 'backdated'. Normally, copy title deeds for the freehold (to prove title) are obtained from the Land Registry at the outset of the conveyancing process. The Land Registry always supply the most up to date copy they hold. I am so worried that the Freehold title is somehow flawed which might make the flat unsaleable. The Freeholder is a social landlord - the Council. The timing of this new issue is also weird. I understand that a report on title has already been sent to the buyers (by their sol) and a draft contract has been signed. Many thanks in advance.
