Old title registration

    It'd come to light that there were some dodgy goings on in inheritance back in the 70s.

    I'm trying to get a copy of title of the land and original property back in 70s, however for some reason title is only showing on land reg from 2000. Unusual as the original house was knocked in 80s and rebuilt with the current property.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Depending on the area of the country you are in, registration on land registry only became mandatory during conveyances relatively recently.

    The history you are looking for would likely require a search of the registry of deeds. There are firms who do this, but you would probably be best advised seeking advice on the matter from a solicitor.

    what exactly is the issue..for..unless you think you have some "right" to some land.. somewhere..then it is irrelevant..

    if the said land is now registered with the land registry..then i assume you already have a copy of the this only costs €5 to download from the landdirect website..

    it is worth keeping in mind that the statue of limitations..which is usually 6 years for land not always applicable..and..a court action can be brought to recover land that has been obtained by someone under "certain" circumstances.. order to bring an action to recover first has to have a possible right to the land in question..usually thru inheritance..

    the facts surrounding the transfer of the land are crucial in determining if there is a possible action to registration of the land is just one doubt there will be many more

    The actual haose has nothing to do with land registey, it happens to be the place where you live within the property boundery.

    Why do you think its dodgy?

    That particular part of the family have been up to stuff for years and done terrible stuff to my parents and my uncle.

    My parents and uncle were all for keeping the peace but they have just done something else and a cousin and I have decided enough is enough.

    We just what to say ye have done x and done y and now z. If you and the rest don't eff off now we will publicly out everything ye have done,

    We live in a small rural village and that would absolutely humilate them.

    Thank you

    not sure what you "doing things to others" could well be a criminal issue

    in relation to land..if you are asking how do you go about finding out who actually owns the depends on when the land/property last changed if recently it will have to registered in the land registry..if not for a long time then there might be a record (memorial) in the registry of deeds in dublin..but many old properties will have no records of conveyance deals..

    start by gathering any documents you can find in relation to the property..and if you want you can state what you find..if anything?
