Free Land Really Exist

Property identification if the first and primary step for you where you need to show your selectivity and undergo some detective work in order to identify a suitable plot of property for you to stake a claim on.

An unclaimed property always has some signs which one can identify. Overgrown gates and gardens, shrub lands, unused garages, broken or bordered up windows, even unused commercial premises and industrial buildings can be examples of such signs.

Always remember that these signs are not very obvious. So if you drive around your neighborhood, you will surely miss these subtle hints. You need to walk around the locality to be able to spot such signs.

You need to do the Registration Check once your property identification is done. That is, you need to contact the local land registry in order to check whether the said piece of land is already registered or unregistered. It may also be that the status is pending first application.

Firstly, if the status is that it is already registered it might be that the owner has died and has no relatives of his or maybe that his relatives do not want this plot of land. The case may also be that the owner has permanently shifted abroad abandoning this piece of land.

Firstly, if it is registered this could mean a number of things like the owner has died and had no relatives, the relatives may not be interested in their share of the land or property or it might be that the owner may have just simply abounded it and moved abroad.

If the Land registry tells you that it is ‘Pending first Application’, they essentially mean that someone else has already beaten you to the land and claimed it before you. What you should do in such a case is let go of this plot of land and search yourself another unused and abandoned plot instead.

Once, you have checked the registration status of the promising piece of land, you need to trace its original owner next as because you will be asked to provide evidence of having contacted the person while you go ahead to stake a claim on any land.

An effective strategy would be to ask the immediate neighbors regarding any information about the owner. If they fail to give so try asking the post office, probate registry office (if he is dead), local landlords, milkman, newsagents and the like. You might also go and check the electoral roles.

Though it is not mandatory to provide any documents to the land registry, it is always better if you maintain an evidence of your claim commencement date. You can do this by drawing up a document and asking two of your friends or colleagues to sign as witnesses.

Doing things like putting up a fence or in fact a ‘No Trespassing’ signboard are good ways to find out quickly whether there are at all any owners to the plot of land.
