Listed prop­erty deeds search

Hertfordshire Life - - FEEDBACK -

Roys­ton and District Lo­cal His­tory So­ci­ety is cur­rently try­ing to track down ti­tle deeds of listed prop­er­ties in the area, as in many cases they get lost.

In re­cent years the Land Reg­istry has su­per­seded the need for the ne­ces­sity of keep­ing old deeds to prop­er­ties. A work­ing party of the so­ci­ety is try­ing to track them down be­fore im­por­tant his­tor­i­cal in­for­ma­tion is lost for­ever.

We will be ap­proach­ing listed prop­erty own­ers in Roys­ton to try to dis­cover where their ti­tle deeds are kept, with a view to sav­ing them for pos­ter­ity. The deeds may be pri­vately held or de­posited for safety with a so­lic­i­tor.

The doc­u­ments of­ten con­tain in­for­ma­tion of pre­vi­ous own­ers and of neigh­bour­ing build­ings which can sel­dom or never be found any­where else.

We hope they may not be too sur­prised when we contact them and they may even be in­ter­ested in the in­for­ma­tion them­selves.

Kind re­gards, Rose­mary Bate­man R&DLHS com­mit­tee mem­ber
