Hi Alex, we recently spoke about a housing issue.
I have since found out that another sanctuary housing property has become vacant and a few doors down from me. Again the property is in a rural legislation area and sanctuary housing have sold half of the garden to a neighbouring property. How can they sell this legally if the property is the same as mine and in a rural legislation area?
Hello and thanks for requesting me.
Indeed this does seem strange. I guess they can sell the garden off as long as it is going to remain the same. If there was going to be an issue regarding build etc then this would need to be considered by planning officers.
It only appears from you have said, the garden has been sold, nothing more.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Hi Alex, thanks for getting back in touch. I wasn't sure within the law if they are legally allowed to sell the garden as I thought this would appear on the deeds of the property that is a housing association house in a rural legislation area?
Nothing would stop them, its just what the new owner can do it with.
Does that help?
