  • HELP PLEASE! How to extinguish an unregistered lease from title register doc


    Hoping someone with conveyancing legal experience can help...

    On our title register for our freehold house there is reference to a lease in our charges register section. On investigation this is a redundant lease which is still in the name of my grandfather (i bought his house when his passed away).

    However we are now selling the house, the buyers solicitor has request the lease mentioned be estinguished from the tile register as the lease itsself was never registered and has no relevance to the property now (we also have evidence of course that the name of the person on the lease (my grandfather) is now deceased if necessary).

    We have literally a week in which to exchange, my solcitor said she hasn't had to do this before and thinks it could take some time but my buyers solicitor said it takes about 48hours online through land registry but my solicitor doesnt know where to begin as not done it before.

    Anyway have experience of this and can advise the correct forms to complete? Land registry have not given me any useful info when I called up.

    i know this is job for my solicitor but her assistant is away for 2 weeks so i've got to the point I'll do anything to help get this sale through!!

    Thanks in advance
