    Advise on adverse possesion

    Hello all I’m hoping some of you can help point me in the right direction before I get started.

    I have recently saw a property that has been left to ruin for several years, I have looked into the property and it has been left empty since 1990 the owner passed away in 2003 with the property currently still not been given a new owner.

    The site is is very overgrown and very large with one dwelling an several out buildings.

    I am looking to take adverse possesion of the property, please could you advise me on steps to take - I understand I will need to secure the perimeter I have purchased the plans to check the exact boundaries of the land.

    I would not look to make this my permanent dwelling however would maintain the land and restore the property - would I experience any legal action when filling for adverse possesion if no one informs me to not access the land.

    look forward to hearing back.

    many thanks
    James

    Could it simply be the case that the executor is biding their time?

    Any planning application history on your council website?

    The owner on the property deeds is the Executrix however this has been the case since 2013 ?

    The owner is clearly the estate-of-deceased or his heirs. No chance ...

    I own one of 3 apartments in a building. the freehold of the property is owned / shared by the 3 apartment owners. One owner is selling his apartment and I have been asked by his conveyancer to sign the TR1 form to update the list of the freeholders. I noticed the buyer will have 2 names (presumably...

    When it comes to ownership of land by more than one person you have to distinguish two different things. One is the legal ownership and the other the equitable or beneficial ownership. In the case of registered land (and ignoring exceptions not relevant to this thread) the legal owners are the persons...

    thank you so much for the detailed explanation. My neighbour(seller)'s solicitor has come back and said they would add additional clauses to section 10. While I am waiting for the revised TR1, just want to understand if what you put down in section 11 is absolutely necessary or just better/more complete...

    Gordon999,

    yeah I agree. when I received the TR1 form from the seller's conveyancer, I thought it looked a bit funny (suspect it was prepared by a junor staff). After watching a vid from the land registry regarding the TR1, I realised it might not have been correctly filled in so started...

    The transfer is way off.

    Each section should be completed as follows:

    1. The title number of the freehold property

    2. The description of the freehold property

    3. -

    4. The names of all the current freeholders i.e the registered proprietors...

    I believe there should separate LR title numbers for one " leasehold title for sale flat" and one "freehold title for the entire building"

    (a) The TR1 form for transfer of leasehold title shows name of " Transferor" ( seller) and "Transferee"(buyer...

    You could also suggest that only one of the buyers becomes party to the freehold.
