Title Deeds

  • A legal document showing property ownership.
  • This deed is normally retained by a lender until mortgage redemption.
  • It is worthwhile avoiding paying every last penny as it costs money to protect deeds and they are easily retrieved from a lender whereas at home they could be lost in a fire.
  • Land Registry would provide replacement copies for a fee.
  • If there is more than one owner it will be held as joint tenants  or  tenants in common.
  • This is important for a number of reasons including the proportion of tax payable by 'non-doms'.
