Required Reading: How to avoid a legal nightmare when selling an historic estate


When a large, historic estate is being sold out of the family, it's not just an emotional process, it's also a legally tricky one too. Disputes can arise when it's realised - often not until until the point of sale - that the title deeds don't capture property or land that was gifted or sold off generations ago to the neighbouring landowners. Annie Wills talks us through the checks that should be carried out before selling, and how to avoid costly disputes.
