In that case they should proceed with registering your land claim and boundary?
I will contact LR and try to find out a little more, arsie.
The full reply from LR:
Thank you for your email dated 25 February 2014.
There is nothing that we are aware of that prevents an application being made to register land, the application would be treated on its merits and on the documentary title lodged. However, registration may not resolve the issues on the ground, which have been described in your e-mail. In the circumstances described it would be best that independent legal advice is sought.
All land registry plans are based on Ordnance Survey detail and unless the boundary has been determined within the meaning of the Land Registration Act 2002, the boundary of a registered estate is a general boundary only. This means that the exact line of the boundary is undetermined.
It should be noted that the red edged extent on each title plan is no more than indicative of the land in any registered title. Each title plan has been prepared with general boundaries (under s.60 Land Registration Act 2002) and is not intended to show the exact position of any boundaries, only their general position. If more precision is required about the exact position of the boundaries you should refer back to your deeds and documents.
Land Registry provides procedural advice to explain how the land registration system works and how to make applications correctly. There are limits to the advice that we will provide. We will not provide legal advice, and will provide advice only about real cases, not about theoretical circumstances. We will not express a view on questions where the law is complex or unclear except where the question arises on a live registration application. In providing this factual information and procedural advice land registry has to remain impartial as we recognise that others may be affected by what we say so as to avoid any conflict of interest.
I hope this is of assistance to you.
