      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 3A + 3B ) should be done by conveyancing solicitor .

      ( b ) The TR1 form for transfer of freehold title should show

      Item 1. Freehold title No..

      Item 3 "Transferor " is Name 1 , Name 2 , Name 3 and

      item 5 "Transferee" is Name 1, Name 2 , Name 3A , Name 3B.

      item 10 , tick 3rd box and add below share held by each paerson.

      Name 1 - 1/3rd share ( for flat 1)
      Name 2 - 1/3 rd share (for flat 2)
      Names 3A + 3B - 1/3rd share ( for flat 3 ) .

      Above is my suggestion only ( or leave out 3B ) or call Land Registry for advice .

        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

        5.The names of the persons who are to be the new freeholders i.e. the purchasers and the current freeholders other than the seller

        6.Addresses of new freeholders

        7. -

        8. If there is no consideration for the transfer of the seller's freehold interest to the buyer then the box "the transfer is not for money or anything that has a monetary value" should be marked with a cross. If there is a consideration then the box "insert other receipt as appropriate" should be marked with a cross and the following added: "[The seller] has received from [the buyers] the sum of [xxx] for all the interest of {the seller] in the property."

        9. Do not mark any box

        10. Mark the box "they are to hold the property on trust". If there is a trust deed regulating the freeholders' interests continue: "upon the trusts declared by a [xxx] dated [xxx] and made between [insert names of parties]. If there is no such deed continue: "upon trust for themselves as tenants-in-common in the following shares:

        (a) [insert name of continuing freeholder A] one third
        (b) [insert name of continuing freeholder B] one third
        (c) [insert name of buyers] one third [as joint tenants] or [tenants-in-common in equal shares or otherwise as required]

        11. Insert the following:

        {The seller] wiith full title guarantee assigns to [the buyers] all his equitable interest and all other his estate right and interest in the property to [the buyers].

        This transfer is made for the purpose of giving effect to the appointment of new trustees.

          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 making further enquiry.

          thanks for your suggestion. much appreciated

            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 to be there? what will be the implications / downside if (11) is not there?

              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 registered as proprietors at HM Land Registry. The beneficial owners are the persons who derive advantage from the property. As here, the legal owners and the beneficial owners can be the same persons, but that does not mean that the legal and beneficial interests merge - they still exist as distinct interests.

              If one of joint owners wishes to dispose of his interest to an outsider and the outsider is to take his place as a legal owner, two distinct things need to happen for the job to be done correctly. One is that the disposer assigns his beneficial interest to the outsider and the other is that the disposer and the other owners transfer the legal estate to the outsider and the other owners. So, if property is owned by A, B and C and A is selling or giving his one third interest to D then:

              (a) A assigns his one third interest to D and any consideration is expressed to be paid by D to A

              and

              (b) A, B and C transfer the legal estate to B, C and D and consideration does not come into it.

              The two distinct assurances can be dealt with by separate documents, but it is convenient to deal with them in one.

              The TR1 you posted achieved neither (a) nor (b). My suggestions assume that it will all be done in one document.

              Without the first part of "my" part 11 it is not clear from the face of the document what is happening. From your point of view it makes it clear that you are not disposing of your beneficial interest. "My" part 10 confirms what the beneficial ownerships are.

              The second part of "my" part 11 is not strictly necessary, but makes it clear that you and the other continuing freeholder are only joining in the document for the buyer to take the place of the seller as a legal owner and registered proprietor. On reflection, the wording might be better phrased:

              The transfer of the legal esate of the property is made for the purpose of giving effect to the appointment of new trustees.

                    OK folks......I'd like some additonal help on this as have had a chat with the new owners who have asked if I can produce any documentation to 'prove' my entitlement to the garden.

                    In the early 90's my dad bought a ground-floor leasehold flat in a newish development. Altogether there are 4 on the corner plot with communal areas for both blocks to the front and back of the other block. Directly at the back of ours was an additional strip of land which was unaccessible until the...

                    it was also stated that your parents bought their property 25 years ago, so that it is registered.
                    Schedule 6 of the Land Registration Act 2002 will be the legislation that decides whether the neighbours have been in adverse possession of the property.

                    Hello There,
                    I would really truly appreciate any advice either professionally, personally or even morally.
                    Myself & my partner are currently in the process of purchasing our first home which happens to be the house next door to my parents.
                    We genuinely thought all would go so smoothly........

                    The possible scenario you describe sounds plausible. However, I never came across a scenario like it in 30 years of conveyancing. Odd things do though happen in the country where property boundaries are not aways as organised as they are in towns. It is possible that the two properties were once part...

                    Agreed it will be the best way forward, so good luck with getting a 100% agreement with the neighbours.

                    Even if some of them agree that may still be an effective way of getting the resurfacing done even it means each of the "volunteers" will have to pay slightly more than if everyone...

                    we have just inherited the house. Chatting to the neighbours next door, who are tenants they explained the fence between our properties fell down in Feb 2020. They have raised it with their landlord who refused to build a new fence, stating that the fence didnt belong to them.
