I can only assume that the owner of the property holds the title deeds. As the property is not registered the land registry does not have this information. If required I can supply the name & address of the owner.
The property is part of a small estate ( 36 houses ) as far as I can determine each property has a restrictive covenant which is quite specific as to what is permitted ie front garden fences, buildings, livestock etc. The owner of the property in question has received planning permission to build a two storey house on land adjacent to their own house, however I have been informed that even if a planning application has been approved building may not be allowed depending on the type of covenant which applies to this site.
My own & several other similar properties have restrictive covenants. Many of the objectors to the planning application referred to these restrictions in their own covenants. Some of the references were posted on line when objecting to the planning application.
My property is registered at the land registry as are several others. I am certain that the majority of houses in this estate would be registered.
Hello Clare, Thanks for your prompt responses to my questions. It seems strange that there is no way of obtaining any information at all pertaining to this particular property. I feel that somewhere there must be a record of the original sale of land to the builder. I may also contact a local solicitor who is familiar with property conveyances in this area.
