Ownership of land is defined by plans
Plans prepared for all property transactions including land sales, leases and applications to the Land Registry (“deed plans”) must be accurate and definitive.
Why good quality plans are important
Deeds and their plans could play a crucial part in resolving any future boundary issues or questions regarding the extent of the land in a registered title.
Clearly constructed OS Plans can:
- Give buyers a clear understanding of what they have bought
- Provide a sound basis should problems arise at a future date
- Be used to resolve possible disputes with neighbouring land owners
- Used for planning applications
Registering unregistered land
It is vital that your legal adviser and ultimately HM Land Registry staff can clearly identify the location and accurate extent of the land in any search or deed inducing registration, and can do so in relation to the Ordnance Survey map.
In most cases the best way to achieve this is to provide a plan showing the extent of the land together with any rights that go with it or to which it has been made subject.
We can discuss your needs with you and your legal adviser and agree a format that is best suited for your circumstances.
