3. How to register land or change a registration

You can use the RLE1 form to:

  • register new land for the first time
  • make changes to land already on the Rural Land Register (eg if the boundaries change or if you sell the land to someone else)

Fill in the form and post it to the Rural Payments Agency (RPA). You can either download the form below or ask the RPA to send you a pre-printed copy.

You’ll need to give your Single Business Identifier - you’ll get this when you complete the customer registration process for the first time.

You also need to enclose a map with a visible scale if you’re registering land for the first time, or if your boundaries have changed. Mark your land boundaries clearly with a fine-tipped pen.
