  • Query re Unadopted Roads

    We have recently bought a house in an unadopted road. I have ascertained that the water and sewage are maintained by the water companies and I have been informed from the local council land charges department that it is classed as a private road. I have submitted a request to the Land Registry (£4) to see if the road is registered and am waiting on a reply, but there is nothing in the deeds of the house covering this issue.

    There is a local residents association that maintains the road but it is in a pretty poor shape and not all residents will agree to contribute. I am trying to get an understanding of what options are open to us to try and get a resolution to these issues.

    If we were to approaach the council to get the road adopted what is involved in getting all the residents to contribute. If we leave part of the road in "an unfit state" and the council are forced to do repairs do the council just bill those residents that have frontages on the parts that need repairing.

    Any help on these issues would be greatly appreciated.
