Hi, when you purchased, did your Solicitor provide you with the Land Registry plan or did he also show the original Plan of the property when the property was first purchased (if the property is over 50 years old, it's unlikely that this second Plan would have been available for your Solicitor to provide a copy to you, but I am just trying to establish exactly what Plans you were shown).
I look forward to hearing from you.
No worries. This question will be left open for you to respond tomorrow.
No worries. Please do not reply to this message until tomorrow. Thanks Al
Thanks for your reply.
Well, unless any formal document has been subsequently drawn up and signed by both parties, changing the boundaries, you are very safe to say that the original Plan you have does indeed denote the correct boundary position, and this plan would have been used by the Land Registry when registering the property.
I therefore do not think you have anything to worry about. If your neighbour does sell, it is more a problem for him than it is for you, in that no Purchaser will be advised to proceed, if they are told there is a query with the boundaries (not that there is, by the sounds of it). So, if your neighbour thought there was a genuine query, he would be pursue it now. Likewise, the Purchaser's Solicitor will show their client the relevant OFFICIAL plans and explain that these are the correct boundaries.
I hope this assists and answers your question.

What you say is exactly right. I wouldn't worry yourself!
