Thank you for your reply. Yes, I would like to know what your experts think. We are disappointed that we still have to do a transfer even though we have no documentation other than records made by the Charity Commissioners in an enquiry they held nationally in around the 1830s. The original allotments left in a bequest in 1730 were eventually moved in the nineteenth century to another piece of unregistered land. It is this piece of land we want to pass to the Parish Council so that things can be put in order and the allotments run properly. Thank you for any advice you can give me.
I should welcome some advice.Thank you.
Hi thanks for your question. My name is***** can answer this for you.
You need to register the land with the Land Registry first. This means you need to apply on form FR1 and go through that process. There is a detailed guide as to how to do this when you do not have the deeds - there is formal guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/first-registration-of-title-where-deeds-have-been-lost-or-destroyed/practice-guide-2-first-registration-of-title-where-deeds-have-been-lost-or-destroyed
Then, once you have a registered title, you can do whatever you please with it in the usual way, which is very easy to do then. You can just transfer using the TR1 form, which is simple to complete.
