Get information about property and land

4. Get a copy of the deeds

You may be able to find out current and past information about a registered property, such as its previous owners. The register may give more details about rights over adjoining land.

  1. Find out if the property or land is registered.

  2. Download a copy of the title register - you’ll need this to find the property’s title number and to see if HM Land Registry holds a copy of the deeds.

  3. Fill in the deeds request form.

The deeds could be made up of several documents. Each document costs £7.

Your search may return no results if HM Land Registry doesn’t hold a copy of the deeds.

Send your completed form and payment to HM Land Registry.

Copies of deeds can’t be used to prove ownership, for example in a court case. Get official copies of the title register instead.
