As commented elsewhere, why on earth don't solicitors always advise their buyer clients to sign up to the Land Registry's property alert service? It is free and alerts the buyer, as the now current owner, to any activity on their title. If they are not engaged in any dealing and receive an alert telling them someone (not them) is about to deal with the property, then they can take action (such as contacting the Land Registry's Property Fraud Line (phone number provided in the alert email to them). If solicitors cannot bother to give this kind of advice to their clients, then that must surely be negligence. I am myself signed up to the Property Alert Service but only because I knew about it anyway. Come on, those in the profession, get your acts together, please!
