What do you need to know about land registry plans?
A land registry plan is a piece of evidence that outlines your rights for the use of your land and property. Your plan will contain one or several scaled drawings of your property, with rights of way, communal areas and private property all clearly colour coded. Your plan should also display your property in the context of the surrounding area, showing any neighbouring properties, roads and pathways. When you are looking for a candidate, you will want to make sure that they are as thorough and detailed as possible in order to give your plan proper weight.
Although a land registry plan is not always necessary when purchasing a property, there are a number of circumstances where one will be required. You will typically need a land registry plan at the start of a lease lasting seven years or more, whether or not the land is part of a registered title. A plan may also be necessary if you are selling part of your land or any which you have not previously registered. Finally, a land registry plan can be necessary when easement is granted for a registered property. This is when the property owner grants access to or the use of their land. For example, an owner might give their neighbour the right to regularly cross part of their land in order to get access to a main road.
The first thing to do when looking for a candidate is to check the land register, as there may already be a valid plan for your property! However, if the previous plan is outdated then you are still advised to have a new one drawn up.
It is crucial to check the backgrounds and qualifications of your candidates before making your final hire. If a candidate is not familiar with the guidelines set out in the Land Registry Practice Guide, your application may be rejected by the land registry. A company or candidate should also clearly specify any apprentice, college or industry level courses that they have passed, as well as any warranty or insurance policies that they have on offer. Remember, your final candidate should definitely have Professional Indemnity Insurance in case their work causes problems for you down the line.
One of the most important things to remember when choosing a company for a job like this is communication. A good quality candidate will make sure that you understand the terminology behind what you are buying, rather than waffling on with terms that you do not understand. Check the customer reviews of your candidates to get a better idea of this. Have precious customers praised the quality of the candidate’s work? Were they respectful and professional?
