Our property experts answer readers' queries about chancel repair liability; buying unregistered land; and tenant disputes.



Litigation experts Clare Rant and Danny Revitt plus conveyancing specialist Eve Lake from Irwin Mitchell answer readers’ queries on property ownership, concerns over chancel repair liability and landlords’ obligations.

There is a small piece of land at the rear of our house which hasn’t been used for many years. I would like to contact the owner, to ask if they would be prepared to sell the land to me. I have spoken to the Land Registry, but it has no information on its records. Does this mean the land does not have an owner?
