How long will it take to get Title Deeds
Some property developers will tell you that it may take 2, 5 or even 10
years to get your Title Deeds. This is being somewhat ‘economical with
the truth’.
True, you may get your Title Deeds in 2, 5 or 10 years, but on the other
hand you could also have to wait 12, 15, or even 24 years!
The average time is just under 12 years.
What causes the delays in issuing Title Deeds
There are many causes for the delays in issuing Title Deeds; among
them:
g374 Property developers not clearing mortgage debts on the land on
which they’ve built properties and which they’ve subsequently sold
to unsuspecting buyers.
g374 Bureaucratic delays in the Land Registry and other central
Government and local Government departments.
g374 Planning infringements caused by property developers deviating
from the various permissions and permits issued for the construction
of their developments.
g374 Planning infringements caused by those who have bought property
making changes to their property without the required permits.
g374 Etc, etc, etc.
