You can go to the Land registry and get a copy. You need your ID or passport. If its already in your name they can identify you and make you a copy. What you get is a record of the information held on the registry. This is what we use for deeds.

For those who don't get it...

Nobody can transfer property in your name without your approval and presence to accept it.

Had it been possible then imagine a situation where you have an uncle who owns a debt-ridden hotel… he could just go write it in your name and pass his debt onto you!

Therefore, your agreement and presence are necessary if the title deeds are to be transferred in your name so it’s therefore impossible for someone to have “inherited” something; like he claims, without already having the title deeds!

Hence the… “Utter nonsense” I initially posted which was correct.

What he probably should be asking is… “How do I claim an inheritance?” in which case only a lawyer can act on his behalf.

What GR says is correct my sis in law wants to give my son a village house and he has to go to Cyprus to transfer the deeds with a solicitor approx cost I think is €2000.

Your son can grant a PoA to your sis in law, and he doesn't need to be there.
