When we bought a house 30 years ago the deeds were sent back from the Land Registry to the solicitor by registered post. There was a mail robbery and our deeds vanished. New ones had to be issued. When I went to sell the house 30 years later I had to sign an undertaking that the original deeds were still missing and if they should turn up I would hand them in. I suppose stranger things have happened, but not much really.

I'm nervous about the wait too.
Sale agreed 4 weeks on selling.
Sale agreed 2.5 weeks on buying.

I have a window of 6 months to ensure that I can keep my tracker interest rate, so I really need to ensure that both timelines are pretty much co-ordinated.

Three months last year but it was mainly due to problems getting mortgage protection

Apparently solicitors take August off (I'm told!) so if it's not done by the end of July, it'll be September. If that's the case, it looks as if I'll be caught out myself

Couldn't see that as an across the board thing...the courts aren't open in August but that wouldn't be a big deal for solicitors who deal mainly in property and wills etc. I do expect annual leave to get in the way of ours a bit, we are only one week in.

Try not get too excited. Sale can fall through until contract is signed. Fing crossed all works well for you

Courts are closed but you dont need the courts for conveyancing of a house.

Courts closed, most solicitors go on holidays. You do need a solicitor.

OP same advice I give everyone is keep looking. I hope it doesn't but sales fall through all the time. Ours did and although we ultimately got the house there was a period where the vendors lost the house they were buying and didn't bother to tell us.
