Planning - Land Ownership and Boundary Disputes
Planning Services do not hold records of land ownership. We are also not able to tell you who is responsible for a particular boundary or provide legal advice on boundary disputes.
Initially you should check the deeds to your property. If the property is mortgaged the deeds will be held by the building society or bank.
They may charge a fee for retrieving the deeds from their archives.
The deeds should include a plan defining the boundary of your property, with "T" marks on the boundaries. Where the tail of the T extends into your property you would normally be responsible for that boundary.
However, if there is a dispute over land ownership or a particular boundary you should always seek legal advice.
The Land Registry hold information on land ownership and produce information relating to boundary disputes. Please visit their website for more information.
