Several years ago the kitchen was built attached to the rear of the house on land swapped between next door and the then occupier. This occured two or three owners ago. The land was never registered with the Land Registry, therefore it remained in a gentlemans name who is now deceased. The problem has been resolved but the question remains of the cost to the current vendor and his/her solicitor. The cost of the detailed search could have easily been bourne by two employed people seven years ago. Since then one has, because of ill health become unemployed and they also now have two young children. I feel that they should have some sort of recourse from their original solicitor.
