I live opposite the land that I wish to purchase. The land is used as a dumping ground and I wish to clean it up. There is also a small woodland which has not been managed for many years with fallen trees. I tried to trace the owners but found that it was last owned by the property development company that built some of the houses. The company was dissolved. I found a copy of the conveyance when the property was sold from the then British rail to the property company. I then approached the TSO with all the information after a lot of time and further research they disclaimed it and sent it on to the Crown Solicitors. I have expressed an interest in the land to them. However they say that the road and some drive ways are owner-less and I would have to purchase the road along with woodland. There is a tenants group who contribute to the maintenance of the road. My main concerns are What would be my liabilities and responsibilities if I were to take on the ownership of the road. Also when dealing with the Crown solicitors would I be bound to go through with the sale as I have no idea as to how much a road would be and am of limited means. I hope this clarifies things a little I realize that it is a very complex the process of escheat .
