    Incorrect Adverse Possession?

    If someone has acquired a piece of land by adverse possession about 10 years ago but it comes to light that a) the real owners were not informed at the time and b) the correct advertising did not take place, is there any way for the possession to be set aside by someone with "better title"?

    Except where the land is registered when notice must be given to the registered proprietor, I am not sure that there is any requirement to serve notices or advertise.

      The land was registered Lawcruncher, thank you

        In that case the LR ought to have given notice to the registered proprietor(s) at the address(es) shown on the register.

          If they have right of access over the road then yes they can, a house built in the garden also has that right.

          I have an unusual situation, I live in a property in a private cut de sac of 5 properties. Property No.1 owns the substrate of the driveway and the other 4 properties own the surface and have right of way over the driveway. Property No.1 wants to build another house on their land and use the driveway...

          Depends if the property at No.1 has a right of way granted over the private road.

          It would imply that No.1 owned the road but transferred the surface to the other four owners who have responsibility for the maintenance of the surface.

          Any decent solicitor would have included...

          by Perfectgame
          Out home is a Leasehold ‘house’ jutting out from a refurbished Grade2* building comprising 55 apartments. Ours is the only one with gas supply to the C19th chimney. We had a gas fire recently installed, but the chimney pot did not comply with the gas fire. According to the freeholder the existing...

          Is this the first gas fire in this spot -- why does it have a gas supply?
          If you plan to make some amendment to your flat why do you feel other lessees should pay the cost?

          In this whole thread I think we need to be careful of words -- "responsibility" versus "rights"...

          I wouldn't argue IIWY. Plenty of freeholders not only charge lessees for doing the job, but bung on hundreds in fees also. Sounds like you have consent to do it yourself, doesn't it?

          What does it say in your lease about walls, roofs and structures outside the confines of your 'house' - that is where the answer lies. Ask the Freeholder to explain why he thinks it is not his responsibility. Usually it is the freeholder's responsibility.

        • Question on Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
          by Clulass
          I realise its not the best time to consider a development project given that the world is about to shut down and maybe end, but it helps distract me, from our impending doom.

          So to my question:

          Am I right in thinking that there is no CIL payable.....IF.... you are converting...

          CIL payments depend on which local authority you are in. In my area of work and having a Neighbourhood Plan in place 25% of CIL did go to the plan area for use in the community but suddenly our new Unitary Authority banned this so CIL goes into one big pot to be bid for. This does not please me and...

          Hi all

          First time poster here after lurking on these forums for the past week. I've just put an offer on a large 800+ sqft 1 bedroom flat and was hoping to get your input with regards to the Building Regulations. For a moment, I am assuming the landlord / freeholder may refuse consent under...
