Land Dedication Agreement

Conflicts arise if there is no explicit dedication and acceptance. It works as follows when a stop order returns the land subject to settlement to the landowner, on the grounds that the owner before that order still owned the basement and air above There is a widespread misunderstanding with land registry title plans. They do not indicate the exact position of the boundaries of a property. Indeed, our land registry system, unlike our continental counterparts, is based on the principle of `general borders` to which we referred in the 1.4 of our accompanying title report and in our border guidelines. The Land Registry Act 2002 stipulates that a register of securities is only conclusive to whom the country belongs. It is inconclusive with regard to the extension of the country. Indeed, the title plan we write in the documents states that « this title plan shows the general position of the borders: it does not show the exact limit of the limits. » The practical application of this declaration means that the land registry does not determine whether a land includes a hedge, wall or ditch, or whether it runs along the centre of a wall or fence or its inner or outer surface, or to what extent it is within or beyond, or whether or not the land registered covers all or part of an adjacent road or stream. Such a declaration means that the extent of land and the extent of an adjacent highway will not always be clear, as the plan suggests. The panel is whether a reasonable track user would have understood that the landowner wanted to prove that the landowner did not intend to lead the way for public use. A landowner who puts such signage in place should also, according to good practice, inform road authorities, unless the sign is demolished or disfigured if there is a public highway maintained at public expense, the road authority (either a unitary authority or a county council) will own the road surface, foundations and foundations of the road and airspace mentioned above as far as the height of the vehicles. use the road. What most people don`t know is that they also « own » the land under the foundations and foundations that cover half the road. This is due to the « Ad Medum Filum » rule, which states that each owner owns the basement up to half the road.

This will never be displayed in your title register, as the land registry only records the general limits of a property. The question of whether a landowner was charged with having land for public highways (road, public road, public railway), and the public accepted it in accordance with Section 31 of Highway 1980. If a landowner has an explicit dedication agreement with a local authority that has signed both landowners and local authorities (representing the public), provided that a specific plan of measures is used, there should be no litigation. Even a brief note can, in some circumstances, be reduced to devotion and acceptance.
