I am advised by the War Damage Commission that it would not feel justified in making any value payments, or advances of such payments, in respect of proprietary interests in property without proof of the title of the claimant to the property. Claimants are so informed and are notified that a convenient way of furnishing the necessary proof is by means of a certificate by a solicitor after inspection of the title deeds, for which a specially low scale of fees has been agreed with the Law Society. It remains open to claimants, however, to submit their original title deeds to the Commission if they prefer to do so.
