    Who owns, maintains and pays for two areas of Public Open Space

    For brevity’s sake, here is a timeline of events:
    1. A search showed these two areas of POS have not been adopted.
    2. A list of transfers by the local council show these POS areas were completed as per the S106.(i.e transferred)
    3. Both areas of POS are listed as assets owned by the local council.
    4. The TR1 in the Section 106 is not dated and ‘appears’ not to have been completed.
    How can I find out one way or the other who owns and maintains this land?

    Any ideas would be extremely helpful?

    Are you thinking about adverse possession, or is there another reason for the question?

    Lack of maintenance perhaps?

      Sorry for the delay in replying. Yes it 'was' regarding adverse possession. The issue has now been resolved

        The date on the land registry is the 23.02.1983.

        I only found our about the charge when going through the mortgage.

        I suspect (and I could be 100% wrong) that as I brought the house cash only, there were no mortgage conditions etc the convayoncer would have to meet in order...

        Hi all,

        Looking for some guidance on a mortgage that I am going through,

        I own a property outright and my mortgage company noticed there is an CPO order showing on land registry from the 1980s and requires myself/solicitors to purchase a cpo indemnity policy to protect itself....

        That is not making sense. If the CPO dates back to the 1980s no way would it have been registered after October 2021. In the unlikely event it was you would have been given written notice. Have a look at the relevant entry on the register. At the start in brackets is a date. What is it?...

        Hi lawcruncher

        I brought the property in October 2021, my conveyancer mentioned recently that at that time "there was no cpo revealed in the searches to make this necessary" I was asking if they purchased a cpo indemnity policy

        The CPO is showing on land registry....

        No ground rent is owing, it is paid monthly with the service charges to the HA. The buyer is aware of the nature of the HA and the freeholder as thy already own a flat in the lock....

        The first and important point to make is that a CPO must be exercised within 3 years. There may be some doubt about precisely when the 3 years starts, but there can surely be no doubt that a CPO made in the 1980s is now a dead letter. Either it was never exercised or, if it was, it related to a part...

        It's not just ground rent, if freeholder refuses to answer LPE1 enquiries it should raise a big red flag for any buyer.

        Do you know how much ground rent is owing ?

        You could make an offer to buyer's solicitor for a retention £1000 to cover any ground rent owing before sale date . Retention held by Seller's solicitor for one year....
