This is a strange one, which I hope someone might have had dealings with in the past, so here goes.
My wife rents a property at the moment, which she purchased back in the early 90’s with her partner at the time. The partner left her and moved out of the property around 18 months after they first purchased it, and has never been seen since.
The problem is, my wife in all this time never took care of any of the legal side, after her partner left. He is still on the title deed, but she has no idea of where he might be.
She did use a solicitor around 5 years ago, who said he could sort this, but after paying out around £2000, she was no better off.
She has tried to find out where he might be, by contacting some old friends, but after he moved to the states in the mid 90’s, no one has had any further contact.
So moving on, my wife wants to remove him from the title deed, and place me on it. But tracking him down, would most likely be impossible after all this time.
He paid nothing into the property at the time, and never paid any of the mortgage the 18 months he was living there. So understand he has little claim apart from this period.
So can any one put us in the right direction, on how we remove him from the title deed?
