HI yes that's right
HI thanks for the reply, just a couple of things
Does this all full under one application to the land registry or would the land need to be claimed first.
Also im an architect by trade so would the land registry require detailed drawings of the separation of the property ?
When you refer to the paper owner would that be my father im sorry im a little confused ?
Best wishes Saull
Hello. The registration application would include the land claim. Again, I suggest you use a solicitor who can organise the application for you.
Land Registry will require plans showing the land gifted, and the claimed land. If your father has not signed a Transfer of the gifted land yet, then you will need the plan for that, and the solicitor will do the transfer itself. Again, this should include the claimed land - your father is transferring land he owns plus his possessory interest in the claimed land.
The paper owner is whoever the claimed land actually belongs to. It must belong to someone, but provided your father and now you have occupied it in the way you describe, you will be able to claim ownership of it, in place of the unknown paper owner.
