If three people are the registered proprietors of a freehold

This answer was rated:

If three people are the registered proprietors of a freehold property in the absence of a deed showing their individual shares of the equity is each proprietor deemed to own a one third share of the value of the property?

Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.

Do you have a copy of the Land Registry title, and if so, is there a Restriction in the Proprietorship Register?

Sorry for the technical question, but I need this information to answer you fully.

Kind Regards

Title No.WT89686 Title Absolute. Contains the following restriction Clause 3. of Proprietorship Register.

(3 March 2001) RESTRICTION: No disposition by a sole proprietor of the

land (not being a trust corporation) under which capital money arises is

to be registered except under an order of the registrar or of the Court.

Hi John,

Thanks for your reply.

The Restriction you have quoted is the standard "tenants in common" restriction.

Therefore, provided no separate Deed was signed by the 3 parties or reference made in any Land Registry Transfer deed when the 3 parties acquired the property to confirm otherwise, then all 3 parties do hold a separate one third share in the property.

I hope this helps and answers your question.

Kind Regards
