Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, it would be difficult to answer your questions without having sight of any title deeds and plans.
In any event, if youbhave had control of the area for a period of time, you may be able to make an application to HM Land Registry for Adverse Possession.
Alternatively, you may wish to contact the local council planning department or the Highways Agemcy and file a formal objection/complaint with them.
I am sorry if this was not the answer you were expecting.
I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
As youbare in Scotland, I will opt out as the rules are different.
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland and can help you with your question today. The answer your your question is essentially, yes, because it is competent to sell all or any part of a building. Where part of a building is sold, either a plan or bounding description attached to the Disposition is needed to determine the extent of the subjects sold and the subjects retained. To answer your question in full an examination of the titles belonging to both proprietors would be needed.
No, it wouldn’t really make sense where the road is private. Although I assume there is either a right of access or common ownership of the private road, by removing the doorstep from the title could have had the effect of landlocking that part of the house from the road. I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything, I am always happy to help.
It’s more the general law of property here than any particular precedent. Your solicitor need to look at the titles to find out exactly what has been going on, why it has happened and act accordingly. For example if your title has been “stolen” you will need your solicitor to raise action to remedy the situation.
