What do the land registry application services do?
A non-ministerial department, the land registry application services do exactly that- register all land held in England and Wales. They hold all information on land and property ownership in these areas, including information on mortgages, leases and other liens held on the properties in question. Altogether, more than 85% of the ownership of land in these areas is expressed through titles lodged with the land registry, meaning that the scope of information covered at the registry is huge.
Every time an application is lodged through the land registry, they make careful consideration of how to register the land. Their records show any change of ownership, as well as mortgages and leases that apply to the land or property. Fairness, openness and honesty are at the heart of their intentions, ensuring everyone can easily access needed information about English and Welsh land since 1862. However, this information isn’t simply a matter of walking in from the street. Correct applications must be made- especially if you are registering a new interest in, or ownership of, a piece of land.
Why would I need to make a land registry application?
You will need to make a land registry application if you become a new owner of already registered land, if you belong to an organisation that has any kind of interest in the land and its ownership [such as mortgage services and banks, or a lease/lending service], or if you currently hold the title on unregistered land. The land title which you receive from the land registry is guaranteed by the government and helps define the land you own, which is why accuracy is such a critical part of the process. You can also apply to them if you need information that is a matter of record on any piece of land you are considering.
