We do not have any proof that the land was ours as it had not been assigned to either property by the land registry but originally the property owned by us was the only one there. when my parents bought in 1998 is was assumed that everything was completed correctly and the original neighbour had only access to their backdoor and they accepted that this had always been the case. the neighbours property was bought in 2002 and the land registry has assigned the property to them.Can we do something about this and how long would it take as we need assuranses fro the land registry that we coud either claim half the land or at least right of way
We are not sure that this piece of land was included in anybodies deeds until the sale of the neighbours property in 2002
We were not informed by the neighbour if he knew about this land or by the land Registry that they had allocated it
No both parents are dead and the original owner of the other property is also dead. we may have a neighbour the other side to us who had lived in her house most of her life(she is now approx 70 yrs who could possibly shed some light ie her memory of access by my parents and the original people who owned our property
no we have only just found out about from our buyers solicitor and they were hoping to complete on th 16th of this month. they will take an assurance from a solicitor that acess is possible. so how long would it take for the land registry to give an acceptable answer
how likely is it that the right of way application will be successful?
we can prove for ourselves from 1988 =26yrs and probably with neighbour support earlier than that. should we go for prescriptive right of way would this be a quicker resolution/ Also could a solicitor give an assurance after vspeaking to the land registry
That,s very helpful and reassuring Thank you very much for your help. the rest is obviously down to us
