Someone bought my street!

Can not get to the links but the most likely scenario is that when the original houses were sold the individual land boundaries did not include the roads, usually you own the land fronting your property to the centre of the road. If as you say the roads are adopted they are public highway and anyone can use them and the council will maintain them, the council does not always own the land the highway is on, usually on housing estates it is the frontage property. The developer probably now wants to get rid of the land the highway is on as if he has sold the last plots he will want to remove any ties with the site.
If you speak to the local highways registry section at the council they will confirm whether the highway is adopted or not, if it is nothing will change, if not you need to check what your access rights are on your deeds.... Read More
