Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
For clarity the Diocese are in fact taking acting to transfer the ownership of the Land back to you by way of a Conveyance/TR1.
They are asking for Indemnity Insurance regarding your standing as the only remaining family member
Is that correct?
What is your objection to paying this fee?
No I am afraid that to successfully transfer the ownership into your name you will need the TR1 signed by the representative of the diocese
There is no other way around this I am afraid, the Land Registry cannot take any action based on the genealogy evidence and the original Grant.
Whilst they certainly do not appear to be prioritising the return of the property to you they are taking the appropriate steps to deal with the matter
Please ask if you need further details
The property does indeed revert to you but to Register the change you will need the paperwork to be signed by the Diocese.
Each Diocese is autonomous and you will need the appropriate Diocese to sign the Transfer.
Since they are already processing the Transfer there is no court action that you can take unless matters simply drag on
