Hello, I wish to meet and discuss with the owner matters concerning his/this property, however, the registered owner remains a gentleman who died 13 years ago.
The owner died Intestate in August 2010 and the Administration of his estate was begun by his daughter who submitted details at the time to the District Probate Registry at Winchester but up to now, thirteen years later she has failed to complete her duties as Administrator and submit form AS1 and others to Land Registry. She has not registered the property in her, or anyone else’s name. She does not live at the property which is occupied by unrelated third parties.
Under Intestacy Rules, her Father’s house will become the property of his only daughter, the Administrator.
As shown on the government website documentation states that one “must register all land and property with HM Land Registry if you’ve inherited it”. It would seem from the word “must” that this is mandatory. It may be argued that the daughter has not yet inherited the property because the Administrator (herself) has not yet registered it in her name. There also seems to be no time limit over which these Administration duties ‘must’ be carried out.
However, I contend that after a delay of 13 years, this is unacceptable. I remain unable to contact and discuss matters about this property with the owner. My question is: ‘How can this situation be resolved so that I may contact a living owner’?
