Dear Mr. Smith,
Sub: Sale of a part in your Garden admeasuring to __ sq.yds ; legal issues involved.
Sub: The selling of a section of your garden measuring __ square yards ; legal issues involved.
A comprehensive guide for land law relating to gardens can be found at www.Gardenlaw.co.uk. A list of some of the most important legal matters that relate to you can be found below for your perusal, including rules for claims. The creation of a Title Deed will carry all of the terms and conditions of the Weeds Act 1959, the Noise Act 1996, and the Neighbouring Land Act 1992. The created Title Deed must be drafted in suitable detail and with thorough review, to ensure that discrepancies and inconsistencies do not happen, and as such any loss or damages. Some notable issues for your perusal are as follows:
Please asses and utilise the HM Land Registry to its full advantage when selling land by using accurate land boundary splitting and demarcation of the boundarys that face your land and build.
The construction of a house or studio does not in any manner go against your privacy or the security of your land and property, as long as funds from sales have entered your registered bank account, in compliance with the provisions of the Land Registration Act 1988.
A formal and clear Title Deed of sale is required, preferably from a solicitor - please find enclosed a sample deed should you need it for reference.
Enclosed: sample title deed.
Note on Legal issues
Once Ms. Doherty has her name registered on the deed of sale, she will receive the title of property and will become Mr. Smith's neighbour. While both Mr. Smith and Ms. Doherty are entitled to use and enjoy the land and garden, they must be aware of, and adhere to, the Neighbouring Land Act 1992, and its associated terms and conditions, in regards to the demolition of the property on the land, its construction and renovation that will occur occasionally. The Title Deed shall be held by the Vendor and Vendee, which addresses any issues that arise after the sale, and states how issues should be solved. Due to the evident temperament of Ms. Doherty and the possible issues that may arise because due to this, and given the fact that Mr. Smith is a pensioner, it would be of benefit in protecting his section of property for an intermediary arbitrator to be hired to help resolve any issues that arise in the according legal manner - viz., noise, privacy issues, boundaries, hedges etc. This will help in facilitating optimum living conditions and well-being for both parties.
