Hi I bought one plot of land at a UK Auction in Oct 2003 and paid 10% £28000 at the fall of the hammer, then at completion 28 days later the Completion plot plan showed 2 separate parcels of land quite different to the plan shown at Auction. I signed the completion plan as I could not afford to lose my £28,000 deposit. Can I now claim for rectification of the Land I thought I bought at Auction?

Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years experience.

I am sorry to read of the above. May I clarify - is the area of land the same, but the land is comprised of two separate titles as opposed to what you understood was one single title? Or is this a case where the area and amount of land is substantively different to what was auctioned? - i.e. there is significantly less land, the land is in a different location etc?

Hi Joshua, thank you for the response. The Completion Land is 2 parcels of Land under the one Title. The Completion Land has a similar volume of area and if anything is slightly bigger than the Auction Land.

Many thanks. Is it convenient if I give you a call in the next few minutes or is another time better for you?
