I am currently looking into the possibility of buying a small piece of land (less than 9m2) from my next door neighbour.
I have spoken to her about the purchase and she is happy to proceed at the right price. I have spoken to my solicitor who has quoted £850. That seems a lot of money for what seems a quite simple task.
I have a mortgage on my home but she does not have a mortgage and has lived in the home for over 50 years. Her home/ plans/ drawings is not on Land Registry but she claims the land is hers – should I question this before I purchase? In my deeds there is a written agreement between both my neighbours to cross my land to get onto this small piece of land. It used to be an outside toilet and storage shed (no longer in existence). They have not crossed my land in years and do not use the land.
My neighbour has not used this piece of land for years and left it overgrown, until last year I knocked down the fence and cleaned it up (with her permission) because it was leaning and stuff growing up against my house and she is an old widow so couldn’t do it herself. I now use the land to store wood and my bins.
Is it an easy task to changing the title deeds with the land registry and drawing up the new plans? as I don’t want to pay £850. Should I contact my mortgage provider?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
