    I have a piece of land and my parents have put a residential log cabin on it , the idea being is that they are closer to me in their later years and practically no longer have to drive to attend their horses.

    My stepdad has an estranged family ( children ).

    I want to protect myself from any future claim and need a water tight document to ensure there is no claim on the land in years to come and that ownership of the land, goods and chattels are mine.

    I also want no subletting so if one / both has to go into residential care his famaily can't come along and move in or claim ownership under any circumstances.

    This sounds very specific, I'm not sure anyone here can help, I'd go straight to a solicitor for advice on this.

    Could be too late.

    How/where did you document (signed by you & parents) the terms under which log cabin was put on your land? Did it have planning & building regs approval?

    Who is named as land-owner on land register? (You can have a beneficial interest in property without being named on LR: Parents may be deemed to have an interest having "improved" the land by adding facilities, presumably at their expense.)

    Who paid for log-cabin & it's installation?

    Electric, water connections?

    Any money changed hands so far?? Who pays the council tax?

    If (hope this doesn't..) one parent dies & remaining wishes to have new partner live with them you wish to prevent this? Should make for great Xmas get-together...

    (You should have thought about this BEFORE log cabin was permitted....)

    Which country are you & (separately) the land in - England, Wales, Scotland...??

    PS Whichever you go with, Tenancy spelt thus <=

    PPS You may decide a license rather than a tenancy is best:

    Who owns the cabin?


    What you're insisting on sounds like it wouldn't be legal. They are entitled to leave their property to whomever they wish if they do indeed own it.

    OMG calm down, we are in Wales and nothing is untoward or without proper planning approval and no-one is currently living in it, as I said its for their later years.

    I think I will approch a property solicitor for some advice.

    No one is 'un-calm'.

    you asked for advice.

    People responded with questions because it's impossible to offer advice without knowing all the facts.

    Your property solicitor will ask you all the same questions!
