purchased land 10 years ago in uk, i remember seeing a 50% clawback for residential in
the deeds which now have been lost.
I have been online land registry for title deeds and there is no mention of it.
It may relate to a previous previous owner for the previous owner but am not sure.
If this 50% clawback is active where will the document be? and can i get it?
Best regards

Hello Patrick and thanks for using Just Answer.

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

If the clawback provision is still applicable, there will be a Restriction in the Charges Register of the Land Registry deeds (the official copies) in favour of the person who has the benefit of the clawback.

The wording to the clawback provision will be contained in the Land Registry Transfer document, which would have been signed between the original parties to the agreement. You should be able to obtain a copy from the Land Registry, but to be honest, if there is no Restricition in the Charges Register, I am guessing that the clawback period has expired.

I hope this helps and answers your question.

Please let me know if you require any further clarification.

Kind Regards
