What is the Land Registry?

The Land Registry oversees the ownership of property in England and Wales. In Scotland, the equivalent government body is the Registers of Scotland. They are responsible for registering land ownership. Land ownership can include buildings on a plot, it can also include the ownership of mines underneath the ground and airspace above.

Despite being a government department, the Land Registry does not receive any funding from the state. Rather, it uses its own income to pay for the various expenditures. The income is raised through application, information and registration fees. People can search the Land Registry for the various titles and plans in their database. Around 80% of England and Wales is registered, with the 20% owned by institutions like the Royal Family and the Church of England.

What can I get help with when I call the Land Registry?

There are plenty of reasons to call the Land Registry, though the most common is to enquire about the land registration process. This allows property owners to prove their ownership of a building or piece of land.

You can also call to find out more about the cost of registering your property, or the cost of searching the database of the Land Registry. There are plenty of rules and regulations to follow, as you’d expect from a government department, meaning land owners will want to get their application correct.
