Check title details

  1. Check that the property details for the title number you entered are correct.
  2. If they are correct, select one of the options in ‘Application details’. These determine whether the application is against the whole of the registered estate, part of the registered estate, or a registered charge.
    If the application is against part of the registered estate, please provide a detailed description of the part of the land affected (for example, this could be a postal address or it could refer to an existing reference on the title plan).
  3. If they are not correct, select ‘Previous’ to go back and amend the title number if required.
  4. Select ‘Next’.
