How to find out who owns the property? (United Kingdom)


If you're buying or selling a house or are just interested in a property, please visit https://www.landregistry.gov.uk/wps/portal/Property_Search .
To obtain property details just enter the postcode and house number/name on the above web page and click 'Search'.

If you know the full address you can submit a Detailed enquiry, if you don't you can submit a Map enquiry.

For properties you are interested in, you can download:
  • a title register where you can find out who owns the property, price paid/value stated information if sold since April 2000 and any rights of way or restrictions on the land noted on the register for only £4 (view title register example)
  • a title plan defining the property for only £4 (view title plan example)
  • a Flood Risk Indicator result showing the probability of flood for the individual registered property, produced with data supplied by Environment Agency for only £6.50 (excluding VAT) (view Flood Risk Indicator result example)

For further details of documents referred to in the register and obtaining copies see:About this service
