    Conservatory 18 years old - not part of deeds

    Hello,

    I am considering an extension of my leasehold flat (local council as freeholder) which will cover the land currently occupied by a conservatory.

    The conservatory is not currently included within the deeds of the building, however it has been erected and lived in as part of the flat for 18 years. Can I claim adverse possession of the land so that it is added to the deeds without needing to pay any additional valuation costs (other than legal fees for adjusting the deeds)?

    The freeholders previously approved the conservatory build and were happy with it at the time of its erection.

    Thanks lots,
    JH

    A tenant cannot be in adverse possession against his landlord if the land he occupies is an extension of the land he occupies as tenant, which is the case here. However, if the land is occupied long enough it is considered part of the tenancy. You can apply for first registration so long as at least 7 years is left on your lease.
