Buying a little extra land from council for my garden – Who do I contact?Make Text Bigger
I have been reading this website for a while and found it extremely helpful! So I was hoping someone can may be point me to the right direction.
I have an end-of-terrace ex-local authority house in outer-west London. Next to it there is a piece of land which is not used by anyone except that people keep throwing rubbish there (which the council’s cleaner then cleans every week).
I would really like to buy that piece of land as my garden is tiny and I have a child, and at the moment I have a small table and chairs in the garden which takes up all space, and the child has nowhere to play.
I have googled it and I know that some people did buy land in similar circumstances from the council in the past. I have contacted the council, but it seems no-one there knows who would be responsible for these things. I’ve tried planning, housing services, general reception – no one knows anything.
Does anyone have any advice who I can contact about this? I would be happy to use a solicitor or someone else for that, but again I need someone who is experienced in dealing with the council on these types of questions, and I don’t know where to look.
Thank you so much!
