HM Land Registry portal: make an enquiry by property description

How Business e-services customers can make an enquiry by property description through the portal.

Log in to the portal.

Select ‘Information services’, and select ‘Enquiry by property description’.

  1. Enter your ‘Customer Reference’, followed by details of the property, eg the house or flat number and postcode.
  2. Select ‘Next’.
  1. A property that matches the search details is shown. If more than one title matches the search detail, a list is shown.
  2. To see the details of the title and be able to view the register, select ‘Register available’.
  3. If no properties are displayed, select ‘ New enquiry’ to make another enquiry by property description. If no title numbers are shown, the property may be registered, but you’ll need to lodge a search of the index map instead.
  4. Alternatively, you can access the index map to get title number immediately using our free Mapsearch service.
