    Freehold purchase

    Purchasing the freehold for my property being a house with gardens and garage.

    The current leasehold title is part of a larger title plan for the area.

    A TP1 is provided by the council selling the freehold with all the details filled-in except signatures.

    I have a AP1 form and uncertain on 4 issues.

    (2) Here is it the leasehold title written or title plan number, or both.

    (3) As the leasehold title is part of the larger title plan, should I mark 'part of the title' box

    (4) I take it as the land ownership is being transferred, should the application be written as a 'Transfer', the 'price paid' is the cost of the actual land (freehold) of £600.00 and the 'fee' of £40 according to Scale 2.

    (14) In the first box I take it the seller being the 'transferor' (the council), and as their conveyancer's name is unknow it is marked as 'none'.

    In the second box below I take it is myself as the 'transferee', and as I am doing this myself again it is marked as 'none'.

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    You need to get the site plan for your house separated from the adjacent houses before you can start. It should be the seller side which does this work


      I have both the leasehold title plan showing my property and its boundaries and the larger title plan of the area/village showing all the properties and their titles..


        The Land Registry - blog has solved a lot of issues in completing the paperwork.

          Often there will be no management company and the freeholder or lessees will manage building, but you need one policy to cover the whole buildings.

          Individual (buildings) cover for each flat is a disaster waiting to not be covered!
          What does the lease say about it all ?...

          Hi all,

          Just had an offer accepted on my first B2L - a flat in a conversion comprising of 4 flats - and immediately have some questions I wanted to sound out, before I start paying out for solicitors etc.

          The seller has told me there is no management company, which raises two...

          Thanks for coming back on this. I have been trying to download the freeholder info from the land registry for a few days without success, but will get this as soon as I'm able to.

          I'm a little unclear as to how this would relate to point 2 in my original post - if a ground floor flat fire...

        • Buying a house with BOTH Freehold and Leasehold titles?
          by trusaiyan
          I wonder if you can help with some advice.

          My relative is purchasing a property which we were told is 'definitely freehold'. He claims he purchased the freehold a few years ago.

          However, we have now discovered this is not fully true and while he did purchase the...

          Thanks Pilman.

          Our only desire is to erect a fence/wall along the edge of the land (flush with the wall that lies along our current boundary). We do not wish to build anything else on the land.

          Yes this is correct. So the red edging of our deeds would not be modified?...

          As discussed in a recent thread, I am looking at the possibility of purchasing a very small piece of land (approx. 0.02 acres) adjacent to our property.

          My intention is to incorporate this land into our curtilage. It 'fits naturally' into our existing boundary and is not agricultural land....

          There will always be a freeholder who was the named Lessor when the leases of each flat were created.
          There will not always be a management company if the freeholder retains control of his own property.

          I would have thought that knowing who the owner is can be ascertained from the...

          The word "curtilage" has a been the subject of a great many legal cases which have defined this as an area of land immediately adjacent to a building.

          What you are referring to is a change of use of land to be used as part of a residential garden, because this land will never...

          Thank you Lawcruncher.

          As mentioned, if the sale was to include the grass strip, we would not be applying to have the strip included in our curtilage; as you mention, this is likely to be problematic. This is what I meant by chopping the land up; the grass strip is excluded from our curtilage...

          "Grass strips" can be a bit of a problem. Even if you can show title to them the Land Registry may still exclude them from the red edging on the title plan. That is not conclusive that the strip is not part of the adjoining property as the red edging only shows the general boundary.
