How do I register my property?

If you own unregistered land or property you may have a bundle of deeds, usually known as title deeds. If the land or property is mortgaged, your lender will normally hold these deeds as security for their loan.

Advantages of registering land

You can apply to register the title to freehold or leasehold land by lodging these deeds with us. Our Public Guide 8 – Registering title to land gives details of characteristics and advantages of registering land. 

How to apply to register your property

Apply to register land using our Public Guide 13 – Applications for first registration made by the owner in person.

The guide also includes a section on what you need to do if your title deeds have been lost or destroyed.

The work involved in applying to register land or property is quite technical and most people employ a solicitor or licensed conveyancer to do it. If you have a mortgage on your property your lender might insist that you use a solicitor or licensed conveyancer.

Under our advisory policy we can give customers factual information and procedural advice about how the land registration system works and how to make an application, but we cannot provide legal advice.
