About this service

What information is available?

Copies of title registers, title plans and Flood Risk Indicator results for more than 20 million registered properties in England and Wales can be purchased and downloaded in PDF format.

The title register includes ownership details and, for most properties which have changed hands since April 2000, the property price information. We are unable to provide details of any properties that are not registered.

Please see Flood Risk Indicator section for more information

Find a Property search results reveal registered titles to land [registered estates] that match the search criteria you have entered. For example, a search by a specific postal address and/or title number, will reveal freehold and leasehold properties that match that address. To identify all registered estates that may affect land, such as titles of tunnels, pipelines, mines and minerals and airspace leases, (if any) you should complete a search of the index map.

See HM Land Registry's Practice Guide 10 Link opens in new window - Official searches of the index map for more information.

  • rights of way (not public rights of way) or other rights affecting the property restrictions or other conditions
