Land registration – guidance

Land Registry: ownership change indicator

Local authorities can get a monthly record of changes to residential property ownership within their area.

This service is available to local authorities under a data sharing agreement

Each month, we send you a file that identifies ownership changes on recent residential property sales within a defined administrative area. Anomalies with house numbering, splits or new properties are highlighted.

This service can help you:

  • improve the information within your database
  • avoid delays when getting names of new occupants
  • create council tax accounts more quickly
  • confirm the date of legal ownership
  • identify house sales with sitting tenants
