Land Registry Title Registers show the current owners and charges. Each time the Register is updated the former owners and their legal charges are deleted from the Register and replaced with the new ownership details. The History Search is a copy of the Title Register and/or Title Plan for an earlier period (any period from 1993 to the date of the current ownership). A specific date must be given and the documents will show the details as at that date.
Sometimes government departments and local authorities require evidence that you no longer own a property. The best way to do this is to provide them with a copy of the current Title Register (which shows who the current owner is) and a Prior copy (History Search) of the Title Register dating back to before the sale (which shows that you used to be the owner).
