Thank you for your prompt reply.
Option is out of the question as the legal owner ( " The Company") no longer exist.
Option i am aware of in terms of possessory title. However, my understating is possessory one can only apply for possessory if the land had no legal owners. In this case land registry record clearly show there is a legal owner, be it the company does not exist. The land has been fenced and we have has it since 2003.
In terms of the restrictive covenant that is not a big issue as that land will be only used as a garden.
The problem is trying to obtain a title.
Are there any precedents / case laws I could rely on ?
Hi All ,
Many thanks for the prompt response once again.
May I ask you are absolutely certain about that?
As no one has advised me on that including my own solicitor.
So if I am to understand you correctly:
1) I make an application for possessory title on the grounds that we have been using the land since 2003
2) Land registry would write to the legal owners who in this case are a ceased company
3) If no response is received we would then be successful in our application for this land
What period would land registry give the legal owners to respond ?
Does the said land have to be fenced ? As we have never fenced it as it is in daily use.
Many many thanks for the absolute clarity and excellent advice.
