Thanks for getting back so quickly.
I purchased my rental property in 2006 and noticed that the next door house was empty and boarded up. We had infestation problems in our rental property due to infestation in the empty property. After repeatedly complaining to council over the phone (records not kept) I noticed the back door was open when I decided to clear the garden. As I did not want squatters to invade the property I decided to chance the locks at the back entrance to protect the property as well as my own.
I have been taking care of the property since 2007 in terms of tidying and upkeeping to avoid any infestation. I have occupied the property for 8 years.
The property is registered at HM Land Registry under the name of Nathan Seng. I have attached the paperwork.
I understand that I need to fill out an adverse possession form if I wish to make a claim on the property and I need help filling this in as I'm unaware of the legal jargon.
Please can you advise me on how to proceed, I really want this property and I am guessing the current owner is either given up on the property.
Look forward to hearing from you,
Mr S Ali
Does the Land Registry contact the registered property? if so the letter will go to the empty property and the owner would not even know it had arrived because the post is always overflowing and the bin men eventually clear the garden of the post.
I can have been maintaining the property since 2005 as I did some handy work for the previous owner of my property and they asked me to clear rubbish on the back and front as well as putting and repairing fencing on the property.
I have attached the land registry details for your perusal.
Please can you let me know if I can still proceed.
Thanks for the response Joshua,
I have actually looked after the property since 2005 and entered into the property from the backdoor to clear the infestation problems. I have regularly visited the property since 2005 to clear the clutter.
I only changed the locks after 2007 after I purchased the property next door.From my calculations it has been 10 years so I would like to make a claim on the property via adverse possession, is this possible?
Also I would like you to fill out the following for me.
Adverse Possession Form from Land Registry
2. Statutory Declaration3. Factual Possession Declaration4. The intension to Possess Form
Any other documents needed as per
How much would you charge for all this?
My email address is *****@******.***
Once you prepare these documents for me do I just send it to the Land Registry or do I need to do anything else?
How do I swear the statutory declaration? I'm not familiar.
I have provided all the information via your contact info email. I require clarification on the first question and I need help with the statutory declaration.
Please take your time as I want this Adverse Possession Form to be sound and complete to maximise my chances of success.
Look forward to hearing from you
