What is the Land Registry?

The Land Registry is a non-ministerial Government body whose function is to:
  • Provide a reliable record of information about ownership of and interests affecting land;
  • Provide owners with a land title that is underpinned by the state; and 
  • Simplify the transfer of land.

Individuals and organisations in England & Wales who become landowners or own interest in land must legally apply to the Land Registry to:
  • Register unregistered land ("First Registration");
  • Register a new owner of a registered property following a sale with details of any mortgages or leases affecting the property;
  • Register an interest affecting registered land, such as a mortgage, a lease or a right of way.

The Land Registry records many items of data and its website can be searched for example for current house prices and price movements at the national, regional and even local level.
