  • Information not on Land Registry

    I would appreciate some guidance please.

    The Land Registry documents mention that my property transfer included restricted covenants, however the specifics are not part of the 'Charges register' in this document. Where can I obtain a copy of these specific covenants (they cover things like not keeping caravans at the front of the property etc)? Also, the plan of the land which is included in the Land Registry does not indicate who owns which boundry fence. Again, where can I obtain this extra detail.

    Thanks

    Restrictive covenants will either be set out in a "Shedule of restrictive covenants" which is part of the title registers (though not, apparently, in your case) or in a document such as a Conveyance or Transfer, a copy of which will have been filed at the Land Registry. The details of this document will be included in the registeres (usually immediately below the register entry that refers to the restrictive covenants as, "NOTE: Copy filed" or "NOTE: Copy filed under Title Number xxxxx"

    Boundary ownership/maintenance responsibility: The Land Registry registers and plan will not, as you have found, contain this information. It may be contained in a Conveyance or Transfer of which the Land Registry holds a copy as mentioned above. However, there are very many properties where there is no documentary evidence of boundary ownership, etc. Sometimes, it is possible to tell from physical features which boundary belongs to which property, but often not. In those cases, the relevant neighbours need to liaise and try to agree on how the responsibility should be shared

    You can get copies of documents referred to as filed at the Land Registry by applying to the Land Registry and paying their fee

    I hope this helps
