A man who is trying to sell his property come across a very weird problem!
He doesn’t own it.
Chris Meyer owns the property next door to the his flat.
Due to a mix-up with Land Registry documents means Chris actually owns 9 Willow Court instead of 8 Willow Court, Carlisle where he has been living for the last six years. The person who thought they were the owner of 7 Willow Court in fact owns Meyer’s flat.
In total ten of the fifteen flat owners in the building face the same problem as Chirs.
For three years he has been trying to fix the problem since he first put his flat on the market. He has in fact had an offer which was accepted and was all set to move into a new property when the would be buyer’s solicitor realised there was a problem.
The land registry is willing to fix the problem however it needs all the owners approval before and has had problems contact some of the owners of rented properties.
