Christopher is experienced in producing composite Land Registry title overlay plans. It can be difficult for a solicitor to visualise or understand how a site/land is made up and then explain this to their client. A clear, precise and accurate plan, detailing the individual Land Registry Titles and any other information the solicitor thinks relevant, could help.
Christopher has been producing legal overlay, legal constraint and composite plans for Ward Hadaway for over 12 years. This includes transcribing more than one Land Registry Title Plan onto a current Ordnance Survey map. Christopher can also add the contract/transfer red line, the proposed layout, adopted highways, utilities and easements/wayleaves to this plan to give an overall and instant visual accompaniment to a legal document.
Christopher produces plans on CAD as well as manually drafting them on paper.
Christopher has had over 25 years’ experience of producing accurate scale drawings and maps manually and over 15 years of using AutoCAD and other electronic drawing packages. He is also experienced in the measurement and photographic recording of sites, and the processing of this information for plans and photographic evidence to produce site inspection documentation.
He is regularly involved with researching the planning history of sites, by investigating planning applications, historical maps and records.
