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.

May I confirm if you need assistance with the "Land Registry" in England and Wales or the "Land Register" in Scotland please?

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find continuing a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information.

I’m sorry your time was wasted by a non qualified person in Scots law. I am so qualified. Are you seeking an a non domino title registration of land that you occupy but don’t own? Can you explain your situation a little more please? The more information I have, the better I will be able to answer your question and that is what I want to be able to do.
