    Thank you. Am I right that the Land Registry have 2 weeks in which to make the site visit (if one was needed)?

    Advice on Title Deeds
    Hello

    I hope I have written in the correct section, I just need a bit of advice.

    We are trying to sell our house and we noticed that on the land registry title which our conveyancer sent there is another section on the map that was not within the title deeds for our main property ( currently our oil tank is on that section not shown)

    I digged a little into my old files and documents and in 2003 we had notice from the land registry that the above section mentioned has a different title deed number and it says we are the proprietor of this freehold section adjoining our main property. This shows the section we own not seen in the different title deed above.

    So my question is, how can I find out if my mortgage company has both title deeds regarding the property and if not and only has the main title deed for the main property which my conveyancer has, does this mean I am able to sell off the other section without my mortgage company being involved as it is a different title deed number.

    I hope this makes sense..

    how much is my car park space worth
    Hello, I have a question please, we have been approached by our neighbour who is a well known developer. We have on the deeds one allocated parking space but you have up to four cars as our parking is located at the end of a cul de sac which nobody else has access to unless they were to park away from their house. Now the developer needs are parking to gain access to the site he wishes to build on. He has currently offered to build us a garage. I have said a garage is not good enough and i want a garage parking for two cars and pocket money to agree to selling our space. From what i can see it looks like a ransom strip so effectively they cannot build without our parking space. How much would are parking space be worth and what would a reasonable offer be if they can build up to six 3 and 4 bedroom houses. advice will be much appreciated thank you.

    I posted this query earlier on another thread and hope that it is okay to post here also.
    My husband and I purchased our current home nearly eleven years ago and have been residing here during that time. According to the Land Registry information , we are still living at our previous address which we sold at the time of our new house purchase. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light as to who is responsible for this - Land Registry or my solicitor? We are living in Northern Ireland.
    I am now even more confused as I have now been informed that "It's not meant to be your current address, it's your address at the time of the last transaction with the property. Which, at the time you bought the house, was your old address".

    I thought that it would be only logical that the address recorded in the Land Registry should be the current rather the previous address.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanking you.

Whilst documents may have referred to your address at the time if purchase the application firm asks for the contact details to be registered. As such the information given seems to be incorrect

    If it's wrong then you should apply to update it

    DEEDS OF TRUST
    Can a deed of trust which specifies %age beneficial ownership of a property be registered against the legal title?
    • if so what form does that registration take?
    • What additional protection does that give a beneficial owner on a subsequent sale?

    We do not register deeds of trust as such or the %s but their existence can be protected on the register by way of a restriction. See our online guidance on Joint property ownership and Private trusts

    A deed of trust deals with the beneficial ownership of the property. We register the legal ownership. As far as additional protection is concerned the existence of a restriction can indicate that such a trust exists and therefore cause a lender, buyer or indeed owner to take note.

    For example if a form A restriction is registered then a surviving sole owner can't take receipt of capital monies on their own but must appoint someone to do so with them. That can hamper their ability to sell or mortgage for example.

    Hi Land Registry,

    I'm in the process of buying a property but looking at the Title plan the red line that indicates the ownership has been drawn through the porch which sits proud of the main building and boundary walls.

    The property is a listed building and this is part of the original build, so it has always been this way. Can the LR records be corrected? Do they need to be?

    Thanks.

    There could be one of a few reasons as to why it is so

    It could be an error either int he registration or the original conveyancing deeds or both

    It could also be a case that the ownership is registered under more than one title so the 'missing part' is registered separately for some reason

    Or it has been registered correctly based on what was applied for on first registration and they are effectively occupying more land than is registered

    I'd suggest raising it with the seller and asking them to clarify/confirm

    Yes that's being done, it appears this is how the property was when they brought it and was not raised as a problem when they purchased themselves. So they never investigated anything.
