These are available to the public (for a minimal fee) and anyone can pay for and order copies.


Property Deeds are now commonly referred to as office copies of registered title. They are a précis of the historic bundle of Deeds.




ESTATES & PROBATE

 

Where dealing with a family estate, or a loved one’s passing, you may need to obtain a Grant of Probate from the Probate Registry. See their weblink https://www.gov.uk/applying-for-probate/apply-for-probate

 

The Probate Registry is a Government agency.


You will need to supply evidence that you are entitled to the Grant and to deal with the estate.




ASSENTS


The beneficiaries of a Will can seek to Assent the property into their names and register this at Land Registry. Please see:
