We are committed to making our web content and services available to the widest possible audience and are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website. A first step in doing this is by meeting specific accessibility standards and guidelines (as detailed below).
More generally, the BBC website provides an excellent range of accessibility and usability advice. This site helps people, whatever their ability, to make the most of the internet and also to set up a computer to make it easier to use. Visit www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility.
This site has been built to conform to level Double A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) - using code compliant with W3C standards for XHTML and CSS to ensure the site displays in all supported browsers (see our browser policy). Using standards compliant code means that this website should also be displayed correctly in later versions of the supported browsers.
We have tried to use 'plain english' as much as possible on this site but some content is of a technical and/or legal nature and has to be written as such. We have also made sure that the design of this website is not an obstacle to its usability and readability.
This commitment applies only to the Land Registry websites and not to websites that are linked from our pages.
Whilst we work hard to conform to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so.
The following areas of our site may present barriers to use for some people.
