    buying land, boundary not defined, and land been put into a new title from original

    Hi All

    Im looking at a plot of registered land, Which is a very good price.

    I spoke with the neighbours on both sides and discovered the following information.

    1/ On one side there is no defined boundaries, which the neighbour made a point of, but there are temporary lowgrade animal fencing.
    1a/ Should the seller define these boundaries before selling the land?
    1b/ can they sell land without defining the boundaries?


    2/ On the other side, the neighbour informed me, he had previously owned a comparatively small piece at the back of the land which i'm looking at, Of which he sold to the present owner.

    Ive looked into this and it appears the small piece of land was taken out of the neighbours recently registered title (neighbour inherited his property and then made first registration) .
    When this piece of land was sold as mentioned came out of neighbours title and given a new title.
    Now the owner of the land im looking at, subsequently took his larger parcel of land which im looking at, and amalgamated the large land by putting it into the small piece of lands title.

    But im aware that the larger piece of land had been registered a lot of years ago, before the small piece of land was brought, but because the large piece of land has been put into the tiny parcel of lands title, it makes it appear that it was only first registered much more recently than it actually was, and I cant find the old title number.

    Its like its past didn't exist


    Does this sound strange?

    3/ Now touching upon point 2, I was out for drinks and was chatting to random person who happened to be a developer, briefly spoke about it, and he mentioned from what memory serves me, about something called Land ownership issues, countenance to wipe the countenance records and few other things i cant remember,

    So hoping someone may have a point of view on this, I was hoping as a project buy land and self build.

    thanks in advance

      2 things you should do.
      1. Go on the Land Registy website forums and ask there.
      2. Ask your local planning authority if it is possible to get consent for residential on this site. If not you are wasting your time and money.
