The UK’s Land Registry, commonly known as Her Majesty’s Land Registry under the 2002 Land Registration Act, was founded in 1862. It became an executive agency of the UK Government in 1990. Individuals in Wales and England use the Land Registry for registering land and property ownership.

What does Land Registry do?

Land Registry has over 24 million documented land titles which show evidence of ownership. Questions about any of these can be answered by calling the Land Registry contact number.

Individuals and companies can use Her Majesty’s Land Registry to:

  • Register unregistered land
  • Register the new owner of a property after a sale
  • Register an interest affecting registered land, such as mortgage, a right of way, or a lease

Before registering any land, this department has to first consider each application and decide whether and how to continue with the application. When land is entered in the registry, the department then records anything that has been changed regarding that land i.e. leases, ownership changes, or mortgages. If you believe that you have incurred a loss due to an error in the register, you are requested to contact the department as soon as possible to correct the mistake made – in some cases, people who suffer losses are compensated.

Aside from these responsibilities, the Land Registry also helps to:

  • Provide a reliable record of information about ownership of and interests affecting land
  • Provide property owners with a land title that is backed by the state
  • Simplify the transfer of interests in land

NOTE: Keep in mind that these services are only offered with Wales and England. Visit the website or call the Land Registry phone number for more information.
