Land Registry: verify your property data
Use our verification services to improve the accuracy of property ownership data.
We offer 3 services to verify your property ownership data:
The service you choose will depend on how much data you need from Land Registry.
Use these services to:
- bring your property ownership information up to date
- ensure your data is accurate
- append property ownership information to your records
Classic Data Matching
Confirm addresses are registered with us and append reliable property ownership information to your records. Designed for customers who want to match up to 10,000 rows of data. Used by utility companies, solicitors and conveyancers, debt recovery firms, lenders and local authorities.
To use this service:
- you supply a list of names and addresses on a CSV spreadsheet (10,000 rows at most)
- we compare your information with our database
- we send you the results on a spreadsheet within five days, or within 10 days if you have added optional extras
The results show whether we have traced the property on our database and whether your records match, do not match or partially match our ownership information. To improve matching rates, we manually investigate results that do not match.
You can automatically receive official copies of the register in PDF format for records that do not match. There’s also an option to have certain register information set out on the resulting spreadsheet containing links to the Land Register.
This service costs from £1 for each record submitted and processed by us. Additional options and register information are available. For a quote please contact us.
All prices are subject to VAT and a minimum price per file applies.
Volume Data Matching
Confirm addresses are registered with us and append reliable property ownership information to your records. Designed for customers who have files with over 10,000 rows of data, eg utility companies.
To use this service:
- you supply a list of names and addresses on a CSV spreadsheet (with at least 10,000 rows)
- we compare up to a million rows of data
- you receive the results within 48 hours
The results show whether we have traced the property on our database and whether your records match, do not match or partially match our ownership information. It may be possible to receive official copies of the register in PDF format for records that do not match.
Pricing for this service varies depending on the volumes lodged. For a quote please contact us.
