Search for land and property information
Find information about a property in England or Wales, even if you do not own it.
You’ll need to search different registers if the property is in Scotland or the property is in Northern Ireland.
This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
What you can get
You can download copies of the property summary, title plan and title register for a property in the service.
Get a property summary
The property summary includes:
- the property’s address - the address held by Royal Mail
- the property description
- the ‘tenure type’ - the type of ownership the property has
- whether there are any ‘restrictive covenants’ - promises to not do certain things with the land, like not building on a particular area
- whether there are any ‘easements’ - the rights of one piece of land over another, like a right of way
To get details of any ‘restrictive covenants’ or ‘easements’ you’ll need to buy the title register.
Get a title register
The title register usually includes:
- the title number
- who owns the property
- how much the property was last sold for
- whether the property has a mortgage
- details of any ‘restrictive covenants’ - promises to not do certain things with the land, like not building on a particular area
- details of any ‘easements’ - the rights of one piece of land over another, like a right of way
In some cases, the title register will not include the details of the restrictive covenants or easements, but will say which documents do.
Get a title plan
The title plan includes the property’s location and general boundaries.

You’ll need to order an official copy of the register if you need to prove property ownership, for example for a court case.
