My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Batley. Conveyancing and Clydesdale mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996.

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion.

Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Whilst the vast majorities of properties in Batley are now registered with HM Land Registry there are still some that are unregistered. Any property in Batley that has been purchased since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HM Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Batley property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Many Batley conveyancing practitioners should be capable of dealing with this type of conveyancing but in the event that uncertainty reigns the prevailing advice nowadays is for the seller to address the registration formalities first and subsequently sell - this will have a knock on effect to cause a prolonged home move.
