What shoul deeds look like?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

I've received the deeds to my husbands ex property today but I've got no idea what they should consists of. All I've got is a photocopy of a form naming the house, the advance of money and signed by him and his ex. There is a space for the land registry stamp which has no stamp just some reference number in and it does not appear to be signed by the Building Society at all.

i am sure that i read on this site somewhere that if they havent signed the deeds they dont have a leg to stand on . just read the whole of this site especially the letters and Q&A as that helped me the most and dont offer them anything yetbecuase once you do you are admitting liability

Hi Kate

The area that Wendy (above response) refers to is our response page: Click on Q&A page and look for "Having trouble with Eagle Star or their Solicitors? or have they not signed your deeds!" read that page it may well answer some of your questions on should the deeds have the lenders signatures? But Further; Rule 88 of the County Court Rules 2001 says that the lender has to prove the validity of any Motgage / Deeds before the court, and has to comply with statute (Law) it is not up to you to prove or disprove any mortgage etc, write to the lender and ask them for a "certified copies" signed and stamped by them of the appropriate documents i.e. Mortgage Deeds any application forms, terms and conditions, contracts, and statement of account, and any or all of the file (you may have to pay for photcopying) look at the above mentioned page or e-mail direct if you need any help Regards Nigel Green

All good advice,please do not take as granted that unsigned deeds are not valid,it is still as I am aware at this point very much disputed.Nevertheless follow the advice given and keep fighting.
