    Solicitors Negligence Question

    I'm read these forums for a little while and just signed up to ask a quick question. I'm not sure if this is 8n 5he right place.

    So I bought a property in 2008 and discovered that the Title to my property was defective in 2015. Basically there was a piece of land on the title of my property that was showed as us owning it. When I purchased the property I was told the Title was good and fine.

    The problem is that the property next door to us was sold in 2011. It was sold with the piece of land that was on our title. The solicitor who sold our Neighbours house is the same Solicitor as me and was the same that sold me my property in 2008.
    When our neighbours property was sold my solicor told them that they believed the title of my property was defective.
    The problem here is that my solicitor suspected my title to be defective but never told me when they found this out. I found out 4 years later when I was involved in a property dispute with my neighbour.

    I'm just wondering if someone could explain what responsibility my solicitor had to notify me that they believed my title was defective?

    Are you saying that the Land Registry plan does not match the apparent boundaries of the land you occupy? If so, is the problem that you occupy land not shown as yours on the plan or that a neighbour occupies land shown as yours on the plan?

    • Remortgaging to a BTL so much to pay!
      Loftmonster
      My wife and I are in the process of remortgaging our home to a BTL and buying a new home.

      I've been in discussions with a mortgage advisor for the last couple of weeks. The purchase mortgage is straight forward but the BTL mortgage is proving a bit more difficult to decide upon. We...

      What is the research provided by your broker in focusing on BM Solutions , they are no longer a lender who is the automatic 1st choice

      Ask your broker why he didn't quote the following:-
      Santander 1.39% 27 months fixed including Free Legals
      Barclays 1.41% 27 months fixed including...

      Thank JP, yeah i was thinking we should fix for longer but if landlording doesn't work out we will have to pay big early repayment charges if we sell.

      The lender our broker has recommended (BM Solutions) pays £300 casback on legal fees. Our solicitor is quoting almost a grand so thats...

      Most BTL mortgage lenders will use their own solicitor for conveyancing at no (direct) cost to the lender).
      You usually can add the product fee to the amount borrowed - on the basis that you hope the property value increases by at least that.

      While I appreciate that landlording may...

      We are buying a property built in 1847, with some interesting history, and are somewhat frustrated by the both our own solicitor and the vendor and their solicitor.

      Since having our offer accepted, on a house with no chain, either end, it has been 16 weeks, but the last 4 weeks have been...

      So eventually I phoned the Estate agent and explain that I'm now being told by our solicitor that the vendors solicitor had put in this application, but I'd like proof, if that were possible.
      30 mins later she sent an email, which had an email.from.their solicitor saying it had been done on the...
