Thanks for requesting me.
Is the solicitor who acted on the purchase of the land still around? Who is saying that the title deeds are lost?
Does the seller have children who can confirm the sale?
Are their no neighbours who can confirm you as using the land, or possibly other third parties (eg. friends)?
Yes, but you would still have to do another stat dec now to speak to the ownership of the land and the fact that the deeds are lost.
Your solicitor will be able to do it for you. Try to think of any other sundry documentation that suggests your ownership of the land, this will also help.
The standard required to obtain possessory title is not onerously high, because it can be challenged, but if their are third parties who are prepared to swear stat decs then it will be helpful.Kind regards,
