Who owns that land ??

Quick question.... incase one of you are in the know..

Behind my property there is a banking (Wooded/Tree area) and a road which run's past the top of the banking..

A few people have been "Fly Tipping" over the wall and its starting to look a mess, i have imformed the council who have advised it will be a few weeks before they can look into the case, thats even before they can confirm if they own the land or if its privately owned.

Does anyone know how i can find out (for free) who owns the land?

Cheers

Rick

lol.. I have changed your typo in my quote above, ...talking about toads.... There is a river between the end of my boundary and the land..

I have spoke to Land Registy who will tell me, but i have to fill in a form and post it to them with a map, and then they will reply advising me after I pay them a full English 5 pounds!

Other option is just to wait another 3/4 weeks for the council to get back to me.... (which i requested them to do around 2 months ago!, but they cant find my request!)

Cheers

Land Registry is your best option although I'd imagine a small fee will be required, but if it is worth it...

Good luck getting it sorted, maybe take down the number plate numbers?

Land Registry.

If you carried out a Search of the Index Map it can then tell you if the property is registered. Then you would have to pay £4 to obtain the Title Information Documents for the piece of land.

Hire a van and get it toad away.

As daft as it seems if there are any elderly people nearby i would ask them, they usually have the answer to this sort of thing if its private land.

I have checked the land registy Index map and nothing is showing up.. so i guess its council owned..

Theres no chance seeing who it is.. as there are no propertys on the road where people stop and do it, as its just because it's a larage banking, people think they can do it!!

Its the type of waste that the council even picks up FREE OF CHARGE!! (well if your a council tax payer!)

Thanks

So if its not listed as anyone, someone must own it surely?

Could be unregistered land, which then will be very difficult to track down, and impossible for free.

Stick a flag in it and declare it for the empire of RickT!

I have had exactly the same situation. There is a strip of land about 5 metres from my fence to where a bank drops down to a road. I had a problem with elm trees along this strip of land dying and falling onto my garden. I submitted a search to Land Registry with the fee but they refunded my money because it came back as 'No Man's Land'. I am technically within my rights to move my boundary fence right to the edge of the bank and claim the land as mine and providing nobody complains for a certain number of years the land becomes mine.

Quite often, especially over the last 20 years or so, developers would buy an area of land for housing and build on it. They then leave large areas within this land undeveloped, which is often the responsibility of the collective home owners. Might be the case here.

I was thinking that.... but that would mean i would have to clean it!

After speaking with a neighbour tonight, this may well be the case and the property developer will more than likely of purchased the full area as it used to be an old mill..

I will see what the council say... going to get a few of the neighbours to contact the council too, it may put some purchase on them

Thanks
