Protect your property from FRAUD. Especially if you do not live there. Speak to a Conveyancer to discuss your options.
Don't get caught out like the Vicar from Luton.
Working away from home for a time but returns to find his home sold on without his knowledge. All his belongings gone. His home being altered without his consent. He received NONE of the sale proceeds. The poor buyer oblivious to this fraud.
(Widely reported by BBC, and others, at the time).
The scams are incredibly sophisticated and many have been duped.
