Guys/gals. Wondering if anyone can help me, I have recently been to the Land Registry to view the plans to our house, to my dismay I found that a local business has had the right of way around the back of our houses changed (I know it's been changed as about 10/15 yrs before I viewed them for a different reason). There was no notification of this and I dont know when it was changed. Is there anyway we can get this changed back????? It's causing a lot of distress etc. to our neighbours some of which are elderly. Any info would help. Cheers Thumbs up Thumbs up

RoW is normally detailed on the deeds of the properties it relates to. Are you saying that someone has altered the deeds to your house without your consent/knowledge?

Hi stevie g. Really your best bet is to consult a solicitor who specialises in property matters. If you wish I can refer you to one that I'm sure would be happy to provide an initial consultation without charge. At least you would know what routes are open to you.

Hi Steve, from what little I understand of planning; there must have been a planning application at some point - for you not to have received a notice is bad. When you say change, do you mean they have diverted the right of way path or have removed the right of way status altogether?

Stevie, this being the case you really need to seek the advice of a solicitor as this amounts to act of fraud. There may well be other ramifications, especially if you come to sell the property if things aren't addressed. If this affects other neighbours it's possibly worthwhile talking to them and all those affected taking a joint action. Depending on how this alteration has been carried out, the company concerned (and/or its officers) may well be liable and be required to put things right at their cost and pay compensation. Even if you can no longer get at those responsible, you can get things put back to where they ought to be which would stop any nuisance you and your neighbours are suffering.

Hi. Sorry to bother you but we have a block of four houses (me and my neighbours) and we have an access to our rear gardens and garages. It is a dead end. It's long established and we do not know who owns it. I did try to find out some years ago & got nowhere. Just read about the chap who checked his deeds and got a shock. Does this mean that anyone can just go and change things or take ownership re access etc without telling anyone?? Please reply asap? Thank you in advance. Fred

Hi Fred, welcome to the forum. This sort of thing is very technical and hard to solve. You need to check the land registry again. Some properties/land is still registered on paper deeds, not at the land registry but could be established at any time.. The council may know something about it, including any planning applications. If the land is near the church, it may have owned the rights. There is an issue nearby where the home owners have had to hire a solicitor to help them retain sole access to a driveway that a farmer claims he has joint ownership of. He registered ownership at the land registry and they might have to take it to court to stop him using to develop the land at their rear. This, even though the farmer's rights were removed when the barns were developed.

Hi Fred, It might be worth checking you own deeds. My deeds (1960's house) say I am jointly liable for maintaining our entry with the other people backing on to it. Not sure if it says anything about ownership without digging it out, but the Council haven't adopted the entry and I can't see the builders wanting to hang on to it. Deeds often include rights of access over land you don't own, and similarly can give others right of access over land that you own. Peter.
