Land Registry Issue
My parents bought their home in 1993. Mum is now in a care home and her house must be sold to cover costs. It now transpires that the house is not registered with the land registry. i understand that non registration is normal for properties sold between 40 and 50 years ago, however this sale was only 30 years ago. Are the solicitors who did the conveyancing at fault and should I contact them regarding this failing?
why ? tell a solicitor or licensed conveyancer that the house has to be sold and let him get on with it
the only time I have told a solicitor to get his arriss into gear was when he had NOT completed transfer of title ( excuse me?) - to me and it was the bankrupt sale of a criminal's proceeds
( yeah and the G-men thought it still belonged to him, and were yelling gimme gimme gimme, thro my letter box)
Before agreeing to sell the house and hand over the money, you might like to check whether the house is not included in the financial assessment (known as property disregard) – see the link below.
You might also like to consider whether your mother qualifies for NHS continuing healthcare funding – where the NHS pays 100% of care costs.
But when my late mother was assessed for NHS continuous healthcare funding (she was immobile/bedridden), but still judged by NHS staff as not qualifying.
The company in the link below appears to offer an independent assessment – and might have helped my mother qualifying for 100% of her care costs.
