Thanks for your enquiry.
Is the Title number EX75207 relate to your property or the drive in question?
Thanks- please give me a couple of mins. Al
I have found the land being Title number EX75207, which is basically the road, but can't find your property. Are you on Hammonds Lane?
Thanks but still can't find either your or your neighbour's property. Is your property Leasehold? Is it anywhere near the electricity sub station?
I have found you- hiding in the corner- please give me a few mins. Al
I'm not going to be able to help you, so I will need to opt out and one of my colleagues may be able to assist you.
Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
My colleague has opted out of the above. I will be happy to try to assist you. From what I read above, I note you have obtained a copy of the title to the land you want to buy but it is owned by a company that has been wound up. Is that correct?
Thanks. May I ask the name of the company that is on the title?
Thanks. The register doesn't mention company numbers for the companies by any chance?
Thanks. I wonder if the companies pre date Companies House records. It is possible- the names do sound old. Certainly there is no evidence of currently trading companies by those names or dissolved companies or any companies with previous names.
In any event if the companies are not on the register they are not legal entities and therefore if they still own property that property wll have passed bona vacantia to the crown - this is where a company is dissolved but leaves property in its name. You will need to contact the Treasury Solicitors office in respect of an offer to purchase the land. The Treasury Solicitor administors bona vacantia property on behalf of the Crown. Their contact details are below and can arrange for the sale of bona vacantia property:
