Collecting Deeds

If the Deeds to your property are stored by T G Baynes and you wish to collect these, please email info@tgbaynes.com with the following information:

  • Name(s) the property was bought in
  • Address of the property
  • A day time telephone number

In the event of a death of a client, we will require authority and identification from all the Executors together with a copy of the Death Certificate.

The Deeds must be collected from the firm and we will contact you to arrange a suitable date once the Deeds have been retrieved.

Please note that two pieces of original identification will be required, one from list A and one from list B before the Deeds can be released. The same document cannot be used to confirm both name and address.
