Comprehensive Services for HM Land Registry

Title Plan

The Title Plan,  complements the Title Register by describing the property’s location and outlining its borders in relation to adjacent properties. The Title Register and Title Plan should be read together to obtain a comprehensive understanding of property ownership. As a result, it may be prudent to include the Title Plan with your purchase of a Title Register.

Title Register

The Land Registry Title Register contains comprehensive information regarding property ownership, including details about the ownership structure, exact ownership boundaries, covenants, easements, and restrictions affecting the property. It serves as the only official document providing indisputable proof of a property’s ownership, and conveyancers rely on it to prepare contracts and transfer deeds when transferring property from one owner to another.

SIM Search

An index map search is an essential part of the investigation of title on any transaction involving unregistered land for the following reasons:

  • The land, or part of it, may have been registered already
  • A caution against first registration protecting some claim adverse to the title of the applicant may have been registered

Index map searches can also be made where land is already registered to check for other registrations affecting the parcel of land, such as registrations of mines and minerals.

You should be aware that the official search of the index map service is quite separate from the official copy service through which you can obtain copy title plans and registers relating to land known to be registered.
