    RQ Form

    I've signed up to the free property alert service from the Land Registry as a step to protect my buy-to-lets against fraud but I don't know if I should also be sending in a RQ form as well. Does anyone have any experience of this please?

    In case others have not done so here are the details for the property alert service.

    The Property Alert is a FREE service from the Land Registry that’s been set up to help prevent property fraud. Over the last 5 years alone, the Land Registry have prevented over £66 million worth of property fraud transactions, and with the addition of this latest system, this figure is set to rise significantly.

    Do consider it for your property and those in your family.

    Hi Mpppen

    You can register an RQ form for any property so long as you do not live there which is the case with BTLs.
    It is a good idea to do so and as I recollect there is no fee.

        Hello All,

        Thanks for setting this forum up.
        I have been going through a boundary dispute since I moved into our current property a little background below:

        We moved in on the 12th of July 2016 and the following day my next door neighbor tried to moved the fence 12...

        Thanks Lawcrancher, I have visited Jon Maynard's website I even had the pleasure of booking an hour consultation with him, he completely agreed that my neighbour was in the wrong. I have probably read everything online about boundary disputes already. I have come across this forum today and thought...

        The following statements are usually true:

        · If a house owner wants to build an extension and it would be handy if the neighbour's fence was in the wrong place and could be moved towards the neighbour, the fence is in the right place and the boundary follows the fence.

        A line drawn at the 50% mark on the title plan with no measurements has an accuracy of a meter, Since the title plan holds no ground to demarcate the boundary line render's it useless in my case. we are disputing 3.6 meter of land between our properties where I have 2.2m and my neighbour has 1.4m. ...

        Did the neighbour object to the trespass of by the fence previous to your ownership? How was this dispute resolved? Whilst boundary plans are not definitive, a line drawn at the 50% mark in relation to actual structures is at the 50% mark.

        How do you actually know that the neighbour has...

        You might want to craftily find out when your neighbour moved in. If the fence was in its present position then, I can't see he has a leg to stand on.

        I thought you can't base the position of a boundary on a title plan given the general boundary rule. Surely If this is what the LR practice you can't just move a boundary based on plans alone. If what you're saying is right I can still make an adverse possession claim and claim the land with proof that...

        You need a statutory declaration from the previous owner (at your expense) that the fence has been where it is during his ownership. Then the clock is not reset.

        Hello Andrew Dodd,

        Thanks for your reply, you mean the clock resets itself once I have bought the property ?

        What If I have evidence proving the fence to be long standing for over 30 years, even longer.

        I feel he is trying it on since he lived their 8 years prior...
