What is the Land Registry?

HM Land Registry is a department of the government that’s responsible for registering the ownership of land and property in England and Wales.

If you’re buying a property or taking out a mortgage, you have to apply to the Land Registry to have the information on their records updated. They’ll then provide you with a land title – a formal document that confirms you own the property – along with a title plan that shows the property boundaries.

This may all sound a little complicated, but don’t worry. You won’t usually have to do a thing, as your conveyancing solicitor will handle the whole process for you from start to finish.
