The West Yorkshire Archive Service in Wakefield will close to the public on 13 May 2016 and re-open in new, purpose built premises in early 2017. As the archive houses the West Yorkshire deeds registry, this closure will have a significant impact on any solicitors who need to establish ownership of unregistered property in the area. However, if you contact us before the closure date, we will prioritise your search.
