The wall is likely to have a substantial footprint, if there are uncertainties about ownership - you wont know where the limit of your land is.

Hi Arborlad,

I think I have read this other thread but there they are talking about where the boundary sits, are you.

I think you can do this do this through land registry.
How farback do your own deeds go?.
Are there any old T marks against the wall on any of the conveyance plans?
Hi Cleo5, we have old conveyances for our land going back to the late 1700’s. There are no T marks on any of the plans thereto attached. There is nothing shown on the Land Regustry title plans for both our property or that of our neighbours. This is why we had taken the pragmatic approach that the wall was joint responsibility of the two properties that benefit from the boundary wall.

We don’t know if there are any old conveyances for our neighbours land, and they’re obviously not keen to enter into a dialogue with us.

Hence my original question, asking ‘what can we do next?’.
