The Land Registry Title Register and Title Plan are the officially registered documents that together provide proof of ownership and details of the terms upon which a property is owned.

Anyone can obtain a copy of these documents from us for any property registered in England and Wales, Scotland or Ireland.

The Title Register provides the owners, names and addresses, the price paid and date purchased, the tenure of the Title owned (freehold or leasehold), the Class of Title, length of lease (if leasehold), restrictive covenants, personal covenants, easements such as rights is way, mortgages, charges, restrictions and notices.

The Title Plan shows the property and adjoining properties sufficient to identify it. The property owned is outlined in red ink. Coloured tints and hatches describe those parcels of land that are within the ownership and are affected by easements, covenants and other burdens and rights.

The boundary positions are shown in a general way and although accurate and based on OS mapping, they are designed to lack precision when zooming in to a more detailed view of the border edges. Otherwise boundary disputes may arise where they did not before exist. And embroil the Land Registry in litigation beyond the scope of its purpose.

The Title Plan is currently provided at the following scales:

  • Urban - 1:1250
  • Suburban - 1:2500
  • Rural areas - 1:10000

Title Register

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 current owners, purchase price (if bought after April 2000), name & address of mortgagee and details of other charges, covenants, easements, cautions, notices and restrictions.

As every registered document is unique the amount of detail provided will vary with each property.

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.

Title Plan

The Title Plan is the other main document of title. It shows a detailed outline of the property in relation to its surroundings, and often (especially with larger properties) has detailed and coloured markings referred to in the Title Register that illustrate rights of way, rights of access, watercourses (not drainage) and sections of land affected by easements and covenants. The general boundaries of the property itself are edged in red.

As every registered document is unique the amount of detail provided will vary with each property.
