Accuracy of the data
The data published has been collected from a variety of sources as part of the land registration process. We have developed internal quality processes to help us ensure our data correctly reflects the information provided to us on registration.
We use reasonable skill and care in the provision of the data, but we cannot guarantee our data is fit for your intended purpose or use.
Our Price Paid Data provides information on single residential property sales in England and Wales, sold for full market value, that are lodged with us for registration. The data is based on information provided to us and may not reflect the true value of a property at the time of sale. We do not guarantee or hold that the data is fit for your purpose or use.
A title number is HM Land Registry’s reference given to an individual piece of registered land. The title provides an up-to-date record of the legal ownership of the land or property in that title. The ownership of land can be either freehold or leasehold. A single title may comprise several individual plots in different ownership and may contain multiple individual properties. These can consist of a freehold, leasehold and under leases, all or some of which, may be registered. Not all property ownership needs to be registered, and this includes leases for a term of seven years or less. A title number will therefore not necessarily show all the ownerships associated with the land or properties within that title record.
If you intend to publish or quote from the data supplied, please let us know in advance of publication.
