Land Registry Adjudication
As with Landlord and Tenant disputes, this particular area of work revolves around property. The Land Registry is the central government body responsible for keeping a register of land in England and Wales. Not all land is registered with the Land Registry; some remains unregistered. Sometimes circumstances arise where you do not agree with your neighbour about a boundary that is shown at the Land Registry. Sometimes, you may attempt to register some of your land based on your title deeds and you may discover that part of this land has already been registered. Both of these examples are situations where a dispute may arise between the parties about the details shown on the registered title.
Situations like these can lead to the need for Land Registry adjudication. At first, all attempts are made to resolve the dispute between the parties, but if this is not successful then the issue may get referred to the Land Registry adjudicator to decide the dispute. Our firm has significant experience in dealing with a number of disputes between landowners, some of which have gone all the way to the Land Registry adjudicator. In other situations, we have been involved in situations where referrals have been made to the Adjudicator but where we have been able to assist in brokering a settlement between the parties.
We feel that this past experience has provided our firm with a niche specialism in being able to provide expert guidance on disputes of this nature. If you wish to discuss this further with us, then please give Andrew Horwich a call.
