Adams Harrison are pleased to sponsor the Bubblerush event taking place at Walden Park, Audley End Estate, Saffron Walden on Sunday 29th September 2019.
If you would like to participate in this fun event then please go to www.each.org.uk/bubblerush to sign up.
We deal with an array of issues and matters that arise from property ownership and possession, here are three of the most common points upon which our advice, and if necessary representation is sought:-
In general it is possible to claim what is known as “adverse possession” if you have been occupying/using land that you do not own, rent or have express permission to use, provided it has been continually occupied by you or a previous owner for in excess of 12 years without any objection from the registered owner.
You may own property, land or both that despite being legally owned by you is not registered with the land registry as yours. This could be that the area in question has not be transferred, bought or sold ever since it became compulsory to register in your area; or it could be that there was a mistake when land registered to you was originally registered and land was excluded from the title plan. In either case an application to the land registry is necessary. Following receipt of the application the land registry would then notify surrounding land owners to ascertain if they have any objection to your application.
Disputes over boundaries are very common but are far from straightforward. A boundary feature can be a fence, wall, hedge, ditch, piece of wire or sometimes even just the edge of a driveway. The title plan for your property, and that of your neighbour does not tell you exactly where your legal boundary is. The registered title and plan has only a general boundary. Involving a surveyor, coupled with legal advice can assist.
