It contains a description of the property, its tenure, the name and address of the owners, purchase price, name & address of mortgagee and details of other charges, notices, restrictions, easements and covenants.

Property Boundaries

The frustration of property owners can be easily understood when they turn to their Land Registry Title Plan expecting to see clear boundary positions and markings but do not.

 

The General Boundary Rule, now embodied in statute (Land Registration Act 2002), provides that the Title Plan shall show the general boundary positions only, as a guide, and so one must look at all of the Title Documents, for each side of the property boundary and fathom the clues therein contained in order to resolve the dispute. This will mean looking at each of the Title Registters, Title Plans and all of the available Old Deeds.

Common Law Boundary Presumptions

Where the Title Documents are silent it may be necessary to rely on Common Law Boundary Presumptions (and a small number of statutes). Such presumptions differ slightly between the various countries of the UK.

 

Common law provides that there are certain presumptions that can be made with regard to the physical boundary of a property, where there is no evidence to the contrary (which would normally be contained in the Title Documents), e.g. the well known "ditch and hedge" rule that provides that where land is bordered by a ditch and hedge the boundary is presumed to be the far side of the ditch from the hedge.

Postal Address not necessary

We can obtain copies of Land Registry documents for any registered property, even where there is no postal address as is the case with fields, moorland, woodland, building plots, derelict buildings, waste sites, lanes, alleyways, rivers, lakes, ancient monuments and grass verges.Search by Map
