    Buying house + land to build another

    I am looking to buy a semi which is on the end of the row and is next to the road. The plan being to try and get permission to put another house on the end, effectively turning mine into a terrace. I got a copy of the plans from the land registry site and it would appear that there is space - it also shows an additional segment of what appears to be a public green also belongs to the proprty. The council do not cut the grass or maintain it as far as i know but the footpaths appear to be adopted and give access to all the houses.

    1 - Any feelings with regard to sucess on tagging another house onto the semi
    2 - What do you feel the chances are of changing the use of our section of green to say include a parking hardstand?

    Any feedback or opinion would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Who's Land?

    You must be able to show that you comply with the Council's planning policy. Thus, your proposal should work well in townscape terms, respecting height and building lines and should respect the corner location. If some green space around the side flank could be retained that would be good.

    The Council might try and restrict you on amenity terms - they might feel that the area would be worsened... we have a case similar to this on at the moment, whicdh we are fighting!! Maybe bring in someone like me in to fight your case...??

    I would generally say that as long as no harmful effects are being created it would be OK... but I of course haven't seen the site and details!!

    As long as the car parking space can be well screened again, why not?? The car should be able to exit in a forward position...

    It all depends on the quality of the proposals, which should be adequately communicated in your planning submission.

    Is that OK for the moment??

        Hi

        If somebody was occupying land in adverse possession for a period of say 2005 to 2015 but never made a claim and then the land owner used the land for some time in 2016, then the original person in AP occupied from 2017 to date could they still claim AP with the Land Registry?

        There are transitional rules, it's in a practice direction. The dates are v important. Just google it....

        Also Jon, I think I might have my dates wrong and this relates to just before this act was passed, so I might be under the old AP rules, did they differ much under the new system?...

        That’s great Jon, thanks. I will have a read. Am I right in thinking the law changed regarding AP around 2002/2003 or was that just for unregistered land?...

        Perhaps your solicitor should respond to the other side drawing their attention to the additional requirements the applicant will have to fulfil under the LRA 2002 Schedule 6 paragraph 5, because any application under para 1 will be vigorously defended as neither do they fulfil that criteria either....

        Yes, I think that’s where we are at. Bring the situation to a head or hopefully to a close....

        Read in full the land registry practice notes on adverse possession of registered land post 2002, and pay particular attention to point 7, which is a good starting point. You might find a direct access barrister of more use, Liz England or Rowena George are two good ones, or instruct your solicitor...

        Thank you for all the replies. I have employed a solicitor as this originated from a land dispute. It just seems difficult to get a definitive answer. We just seem to keep writing letters ‘referring to comments from my previous letter’ and going round in circles. The only winners at present are...

        I agree that you need an expert, but there's a substantial difference between 10 years non-contiguous year's of possession and 10 years with a gap during which the actual owner had possession. The owner's possession would seem to end the previous period of adverse possession and a new period begins...

        I wouldn't think so.

        AFAIK they servre the AP, you contest it as the legal owner who has used the land and that's it.
        You are still the legal owner, you still have an interest in using the land, a trespasser can't just claim it now, although they might have been able to earlier...
