One of the most popular reasons for customers purchasing copies of Land Registry documents is to ascertain the name and address of the owners of a property. Any member of the public can obtain a copy of the Title documents for any property registered in the UK. They are entitled to obtain these documents as a consequence of the Land Registration Acts 1988 and 2002, the Land Registration Rules 2003 and the Freedom of Information Act 2000. These Acts and Rules together allow public access to any property's Title documents, regardless of who owns the property, and to other documents held by the Land Registry (save for unedited Exempt Information Documents).
The owner's name and address appears in the B section of the Register, i.e. the Proprietorship section, together with the date of purchase and the purchase price (the price is only shown if purchased after April 2000).
The Title Register is one of the 2 main documents of title (often called Title Deeds). It contains a description of the property, its tenure, name and address of the owners, purchase price (if bought after April 2000), name & address of mortgagee and details of other charges, covenants, easements, cautions, notices and restrictions. It is possible to order Title Registers and/or Title Plans for up to 20 different properties on one form from our web site, attracting a substantial discount from our standard fee.
We also search, as a matter of course, the Day List, which is a list of pending applications and official searches. An example of listed pending registrations may include purchases, transfers, mortgages, charges, notices and restrictions.
This mixed package of searches has been designed especially for property purchasers, and provides documents and information about the property that most purchasers wish to see before committing themselves to further expense.
information provided includes the names & addresses of the owners, whether the property is freehold or leasehold, the covenants affecting the property, rights attaching to the property, mortgages and other charges registered against the property, the purchase price (if bought after April 2000), the extent of land included with the property and illustrated details of any rights or covenants affecting only parts of it, and sale prices of other properties in the road or area during the last few years.
This search provides a report containing the name and address of the owner, the title number and tenure of the property, which is supplied by email within an hour and a copy of the report is also uploaded to our web server for immediate viewing or printing by you. No other documentation is provided. The search can be upgraded to a full search if required, fur a further fee of £10, and we will then supply you with an actual copy of the property register, containing all of the detail described above plus details of mortgages, charges, easements, covenants etc.
A search is made at each Land Registry office in England and Wales to determine what properties are owned by any company or public organisation.The search produces a list of Title numbers and the name of the owner. There is an option on the application form to instruct us to obtain the property addresses or selected title registers, for a small additional fee.
This search can be used to obtain a list of properties owned by a non-private individual such as a company, local authority, government department, bank, utility or the like.
