Hello Mr Denning,
I want the title plan for the property atXXXXXadjusting to show the correct boundary eg the entire site of the original, (now demolished) property at No 34, which was terrace attached to no.XXXXX
This would mean incorporating an unregistered slip of land of about 1.5 mtrs wide, that has somehow sprung up between No. 34 and No 33 on plan and which serves to seperate the two properties.
Have you occupied this land and treated it as your own and if so for how long?
I have only just puchased the land. The published auction details illustrated the entire site being for sale, including the unregistered strip of land running between 34 andXXXXX however I noticed that the deeds didn't match the land sale description before we got to auction and the auctioneers made note of this on the day.
With regards XXXXX XXXXX lands treatment, the previous owner since 2006 ( a now liquidated company) resurfaced the entire ground area with tarmac, and has chained off the area, including the unregistered strip of land, restricting general access with signs saying private property. The previous owner has parked several cars over the entire site whilst it has been vacant, so has very much used the entire site as his own.
I am about to put fencing/ Harris railing around the site to prevent people from hopping over the chain and taking a short cut across the land.
I purchased the land at auction from the Trustees in Bankrupcy acting on behalf of the previous owners lender.
However, the scheme designer/ agent who submitted countless planning applications on behalf of the previous company owner is willing to sign a statutory declaration to confirm that the entire plot for No. 34 , including the unregistered slip of land was always deemed to be in the ownership of his client and that he had signed Certificate A - (a declaration of ownership) with regards XXXXX XXXXX planning applications submitted for the site on the owners behalf in the past.
The various planning applications submitted ( once which is extant) have all been subject to public consultation with notice both erected on the site aswell as individual notices posted to immediate neighbours. Each planning application has been for the redevelopment of the entire site including the unregistered slip between No34 and No33.
I hope this is helpful...could send a plan and photo if it would help
The important thing is whether the unregistered strip of land was included in the sale contract. It is sounding very much like someone has retained a ransome strip at present.
Do you have deeds for the unregd strip?
