Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years’ experience. Please be aware that although I will endeavour to reply to you promptly, I am also in full time private practice and so I may not be available to respond immediately and it may also take me a few minutes to prepare a reply. The site will notify you as soon as I respond. I look forward to working with you to answer your question fully.

Do you have a copy of your deeds you are able to upload please?

I'm following up on the above. Without some further information from you as above, I am limited in what I can say on the matter but in the hope it is helpful nonetheless, I will provide you with the following broad answer. If you are able to kindly provide me with the above further information or if you have any further questions generally, I will be delighted to expand on the following - please just reply back to me in this case:

Notwithstanding the above, in general terms in order to be certain of the position, I would need sight of your title file with the land registry and copy of the file plan. If you do not have these, you can obtain a copy from the following link for 3 pounds each (£6 altogether):

notwithstanding the above, if the above document comprises your title as it stands today, it appears that would own both the land coloured pink and the land coloured blue but as above, I would heavily caveat this that I would need to see the above title to be certain of the position as the above document is not definitive or at least may not be definitive

I hope the above is of some assistance but if you have any further questions, please revert to me
