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 in the deeds.

The register may give more details about rights over adjoining land.

HM Land Registry does not store original paper deeds.

How to request a copy of the deeds

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

  2. Pay £3 to download a copy of the title register. If the deeds are marked as ‘filed’ in the register then HM Land Registry has a scanned copy.

  3. Fill in the deeds request form using the property’s title number from the title register.

Your search may return no results if HM Land Registry does not hold a scanned copy of the deeds.

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

Send your completed form and payment to HM Land Registry.

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