What is a 'title plan' and what does it show?

When land or property is registered we prepare a title register and a title plan. Title plans are based on an extract of the Ordnance Survey map. They support the property description in the title register by giving a graphic representation of the registration.

A title plan shows:
  • the general extent of the land or property in a registered title, edged in red
  • the title number
  • the Ordnance Survey map used to prepare the title plan 
  • the scale of the plan (usually 1:1250 for urban areas and 1:2500 or 1:10,000 for rural areas)
  • the administrative area for the land or property (the council you pay your council tax to)
  • black lines marking out features such as buildings, walls, fences or hedges, not all title plans show these.

Some title plans have areas which are coloured. These relate to specific entries in the title register.

Note: Title plans only show the general position of boundaries. The red lines do not mark the precise position of the boundaries, so it is not possible to establish the precise position of the boundary of land or property by scaling from the title plan.
