Our Service

Our highly experienced team of residential property solicitors have dealt with many applications for possessory title to land and buildings.

We will discuss with you your circumstances and the land or property to which you are seeking legal title.

In order to submit an application to the Land Registry a detailed statement of truth will need to be prepared for each party making the application to sign, setting out the full details as to how the land has become occupied by you exclusively.

Adverse possession applications may also be required where title deeds have been lost or destroyed and there is some evidence that at some point legal title was transferred but no physical deeds can be located.

Our real estate litigation team can assist you with any matter where your occupation of land or property is disputed whether you hold legal title to this land or not.

Our Approach & Experience

You will have one dedicated solicitor who will work with you and provide unprompted updates in relation to the progress of your application.

Obtaining a possessory title to land and property is a complex area of the law and our elite team of solicitors will be able to prepare the necessary documentation to present the strongest case possible to the Land  Registry.

Our transparent pricing means that you will receive full details of our estimated fees and likely payments to be made to the Land Registry at the outset.

Examples of recent work

  • Registration of a large extent of garden and amenity land which had been used alongside main residential property for a significant number of years where the original owners were unknown.
  • Successful registration of a small area of garden land which had been incorporated into the property owners garden from a considerable number of years.
