Common Land & village Green Search

A Common Land Search is a conveyancing search usually made by a conveyancing lawyer on land that has never been built on or which at one time may have belonged to a Lord of the Manor, a town or Village green or any other land you may believe to be common land, i.e. land used by the community at large. The conveyancing search can also be carried out on small vacant urban plots of land as these could be subject to common rights. Many Common Land registrations affect small areas of land such as grass verges between properties and the public highways.
