The Title Register provides all the particulars relating to ownership of a property, the manner in which it is owned, and precisely what is owned, setting out the covenants, easements and restrictions affecting the property and its ownership. It is the only official document that proves a property’s ownership beyond doubt, and is used by conveyancers to prepare the contract and transfer deed when transferring land from one owner to another.
The Title Register is extensively used by non-professionals to check the ownership details of a property, its purchase price, registered charges, and the terms upon which it is owned, and provides a wealth of additional property related information.
The Title Register extends the description of the property address by referring to the Title Plan (the other official document of Title) because the Plan illustrates the position of the property and provides a guide as to where its borders lay in relation to adjoining properties.
The Title Register and Title Plan are designed by the Land Registry to be read together so as to provide a complete representation of ownership. Therefore, you may consider it prudent to include the Title Plan with your purchase.
