    Named on Deeds to Parent's House

    Named on Deeds to Parent's House 10th Aug 18 at 9:24 AM
    I have a question relating to my elderly mother's property which was purchased in the 1980's when my father was still alive.


    At the time I was still living in the house and I contributed willingly to the purchase of the house which had been a Housing Executive rental since it was built.


    I was recently informed (by my brother) that my name was on the deeds of the house, but have not seen any documentation to this effect. How do I find out about this and can my name be removed from the deeds without my knowledge?


    Grateful for any advice and information.

    Note from the OP's location and the reference to the Housing Executive that we're talking about Northern Ireland, not England or Wales - but I'm sure they can work out what the equivalent is.

    Thank you for the replies. I can get a copy of the deeds for 12 from Land Registry office.


    Can the deeds be amended though without my agreement?

    A guide to Northern Irish property law and practice - as compared to England and Wales. Part 2: land registration and searches

    might be worth a look.

    surely it is worth 12 to find out if your name is still on it


    if it is then what are you worried about?

    It's extremely unlikely that your name could be removed from the property without you signing something.

    In England and Wales you can sign up for the "property alert service" from HM land registry and you are then informed of certain activity on the property title. The site says it is for anyone who feels a registered property could be at risk from fraud. I wonder if there is an equivalent service that you could use?
