As if the Coronavirus wasn't a big enough problem I have another issue albeit minor in comparison that hopefully somebody may be able to assist with.
Long story short.. Approx 10 years ago the land at the side of our property was developed and landscaped into a garden by the new landowner this resulted in our property gaining a short strip of land as they erected a large and secure boundary fence which was never there before. We have now sold our property and after declaring this extra land on the "Property Information Form" the buyers solicitor has asked us to apply for AP before completion. Would this be feasible considering that we never intended to gain the land, its just a result of a fence being erected and have never tried to conceal it from the neighbour?
Any help much appreciated, hopefully something different to think about in the current climate!
smile...it confuses people
The purchasers in this case want the mismatch sorted out legally before completing presumably. This is a very sensible approach when buying.
You need to consult your solicitor to explore the options.
Land transactions need to be in writing........or the land needs to be subject to successful AP claim with appropriate documentary evidence.
My experience.....only land transactions that conform to deeds and documents are straightforward.
