The land sale was conducted by solicitors and registered with the land registry. The TP1 document says transfers with full title guarantee. The problem is the land on the title plan is not the same as the land the neighbour told and physically marked out for us to put fences up. It is about half the size.
The registration was completed and we were asked to sign and return a copy of the document but were not asked to review it. I thought thats what the solicitors were supposed to do.
I don't think they deliberately sold the land knowing it wasn't theirs in fact he still thinks its his. I paid £15000 for the land the neighbour sold us in 2009.The people who own part of the land I was sold are now asking for £15000 for the land.
Thanks AJ. Needed pointing in the right direction. The solicitor who provided the service has now retired. Could he still be liable to a claim. obviously I don't want to go down that route. Will see if I can sort it without going down the litigation route.
