    Look at putting a offer in for a house, it looks like the guy has been made bankrupt and i would like to know who i am trying to buy the house from.

    Any body any good with legal jargon and can take a look at the deeds for me?

    Are you doing your own conveyancing? It doesn’t sound advisable in the circumstances. Think you want a real lawyer.

    For a couple of quid can probably look up the legal owner on the Land Registry.

    Search online at the land registry for title deeds and title name. This will give you details of any covenant s or restrictions on the property.

    If he's having/had work done check on the website of the local council for planning applications and/or building regs notifications.

    I have the land registery documents, but i am struggling to make sense of the amount of charges and proprietorship listing there are.

    The charges would need to be discharged before the title could be transferred. You would presume from the proceeds of the sale. Your solicitor should be able to get assurance on this from the vendor's solicitor.

    Happy to have a look at them, if that would be helpful.
