Who Owns the Land Adjoining Mine?
It is often necessary to make contact with the owner of land adjoining yours. However, where the owner does not live there and you are unaware of his address then you will need to discover this information from the Land Registry by carrying out, online, a Land Registry Search for the Title Register. The Title Register is divided into 3 sections; the middle section is known as the "B: Proprietorship Register". In this section is given the name and registered address of the owner (registered proprietor).
Therefore, in order to find out the ownership details of the land adjoining your own, you need to obtain an up to date copy of the Title Register.
The general way to obtain a copy of the Title Register is to apply online for a Title Register search. To do so, however, you will need either the Title Number of the land, or else a postal address. Land upon which there is no dwelling, shop or office will not have a postal address, and most people will not know the Title Number.
You can obtain a copy of the Title Register, however, by applying for a Map Search. Where an application is made to ourselves, the application form itself contains two types of Map Search, the first being a standard Google based map where you would zoom into the land in question and drop a pin onto it. The map identifies the coordinates of the map pin and adds them to the application form.
The second map is a more advanced map, which allows you to trace an outline of the property over the map. An exact copy of this map is attached to your application form when you submit it to us, and we usually have no difficulty in identifying it.
