A solicitor has been holding the deeds to my father in laws house since 1956. He has now moved into a nursing home so there is now a need to put it on the market and sell it.
However, it now turns out the solicitor could not find the deeds and they say they gave them to a third party in 1978 who was negotiating a £3000 advance. This person cannot be found and solicitor has no proof of releasing Deeds.
Land registry will not give full title deeds only possessory title because of this and the solicitor refuses to except any responsibility for loss are there any other avenues other then taking legal action open to us.
