Rural Owners – Take Note

Knight Frank are warning rural property owners that they could lose manorial rights if they are not registered by 12 October 2013. Michael McCullough, Head of Mapping and GIS at Knight Frank, says, ‘Manorial rights often include valuable mineral and sporting rights so they are definitely worth protecting.’

‘Those most at risk are where land has been sold, often many years ago, with vacant possession, but the manorial rights retained. As of 12 October this autumn any overriding interest in these rights will be lost if they have not been registered.’ Time to take legal advice?
