The Land Registry Title Register and Title Plan are the officially recognised documents that together offer evidence of ownership and detail the terms under which a property is owned.

Anyone can obtain a copy of these documents from us for any property registered in England and Wales, Scotland, or Ireland.

The Title Register provides the owners’ names and addresses, the price paid and date of purchase, the tenure of the Title owned (freehold or leasehold), the Class of Title, length of lease (if leasehold), restrictive covenants, personal covenants, easements such as rights of way, mortgages, charges, restrictions, and notices.

The Title Plan displays the property and adjoining properties sufficiently to identify it. The property owned is outlined in red ink. Coloured tints and hatches describe those parcels of land that are within the ownership and are affected by easements, covenants, and other burdens and rights.

The boundary positions are shown in a general manner, and while accurate and based on OS mapping, they are designed to lack precision when zooming into a more detailed view of the border edges. This approach helps to prevent boundary disputes from arising where they did not previously exist and avoids involving the Land Registry in litigation beyond the scope of its purpose.

The Title Plan is currently provided at the following scales:

Urban – 1:1250

Suburban – 1:2500

Rural areas – 1:10000

Simplified Compliance

A title plan is an essential component in the land registration process, as it offers a precise depiction of a property’s borders and the territory it encompasses. Land registry offices are responsible for preserving these records, which promote openness in property transactions and aid in avoiding conflicts. This article delves into the significance of title plans, their contents, and the procedure for acquiring them.

Lease plans for Land Registry


What is a title plan?

A title plan is an official map that delineates the boundaries of a registered property or land parcel. It is usually based on the Ordnance Survey map, which is a detailed and comprehensive mapping system used in the United Kingdom. Title plans help establish the extent of ownership rights and responsibilities, as well as any potential restrictions, easements, or covenants associated with the property.


When preparing to print a lease plan, it’s crucial to properly configure your printer settings to ensure the plan is printed at the correct scale. Incorrect printer settings can result in a plan that doesn’t match the intended dimensions, which can be problematic. To assist you in this process, we provide a comprehensive lease plan printing guide. This guide will walk you through the necessary steps to adjust your printer settings and ensure an accurate printout of your lease plan. Printing Guide Here 

Moreover, as an integral part of our service, we offer the convenience of sending you a professionally printed copy of your lease plan. This copy will be accurately scaled, sparing you the task of printing it out yourself. By utilising our service, you can have peace of mind knowing that the lease plan you receive will be of professional quality and to the exact scale required, eliminating any concerns about printer configurations or scale accuracy.

Our lease plans are meticulously crafted to ensure full compliance with Land Registry requirements. Each plan is carefully produced to an exact scale, which is a critical aspect of meeting the Land Registry’s stringent standards. Alongside the main plan, we include a scaled site plan that provides a comprehensive overview of the property in relation to its surroundings.

One of the key features of our lease plans is the inclusion of an accurate north point. This element is essential for orientation purposes and is a standard requirement for Land Registry compliance. It helps in accurately determining the direction and layout of the property, which is crucial for legal and architectural purposes.

Furthermore, we take special care in marking the demise of the property. This is done by clearly edging the boundaries of the leased area in red. This clear demarcation is vital for legal clarity, as it precisely defines the extent of the property being leased. Our attention to detail in these aspects ensures that our lease plans not only meet but exceed the requirements set forth by the Land Registry, providing you with a reliable and legally compliant document.

Yes, there is a detailed guide available that outlines the Land Registry requirements for lease plans. This guide is provided by the UK Government on their official website and includes comprehensive instructions and criteria for preparing plans that will be accepted by the Land Registry. Key points from this guide include:

  1. Identification on Ordnance Survey Map: Plans must clearly identify the land on the Ordnance Survey map and comply with specific guidelines provided in the guide. Non-compliance may not always prevent an application from proceeding, but if the land can’t be clearly identified, the application might be rejected​​.

  2. Importance of Quality Plans: High-quality plans are essential for giving buyers a clear understanding of their purchase, providing a basis for resolving future issues, ensuring efficient processing of applications, and reducing the number of rejected applications by the HM Land Registry​​.

  3. Guidelines for Specific Applications: While the guidelines for plans are fundamentally the same across different types of applications, there are variations depending on the specific situation. The guide offers advice for preparing plans for various application types​​.

  4. First Registrations: For first-time registrations of land, detailed plans are usually required, although a verbal description might suffice in some cases with well-defined features. Uncertainty about the land’s extent necessitates a plan​​.

  5. Transfers/Leases of Part of a Registered Estate: For transfers or leases of part of a registered estate, a plan showing the land being transferred or leased is required. Any plan used must be based on the current approved version of the estate plan, and mere verbal descriptions are not sufficient​​.

Why are title plans important?

Title plans play a crucial role in property transactions by providing:

  • Legal certainty: They help establish the legal ownership and boundaries of a property, reducing the risk of disputes.
  • Transparency: Title plans provide a clear representation of the property’s layout, making it easier for prospective buyers to understand the land they are purchasing.
  • Record-keeping: They serve as a historical record of land ownership and transactions, which can be useful for future reference.

How can title deeds be downloaded from Land Registry?

To download title deeds from the Land Registry, follow these steps:

1. Access the HMLR portal: Start by visiting the HMLR portal, where you can search for any property in England and Wales. The portal allows you to access title deeds.

2. Enter property details: To search for a specific property’s title deeds, enter the house number or name, along with the postcode, into the portal’s search bar. This will help to locate the correct property.

3. Create an account: Before accessing the title deeds, you will need to create an account on the HMLR portal. Provide a valid email address and add your billing information during the account creation process.

4. Perform the Land Registry search: Once you have set up your account, you can proceed with performing the Land Registry search. Enter the required details and initiate the search for the title deeds of the property you are interested in.

How can a property be registered with Land Registry?

To register a property with Land Registry in England and Wales, there is a mandatory requirement that came into effect in 1990. If a property is being bought, sold, gifted, or mortgaged, it must be registered. However, it’s important to note that not all properties have been registered yet, as they may not have triggered this requirement. Nevertheless, it is advisable to voluntarily register properties as doing so can help minimize complications when it comes to selling and also reduces the risk of property fraud. For detailed information on how to register a property for the first time, you can find the necessary details on the Land Registry website.

What should property owners do if they can't find the original title deeds?

If property owners are unable to locate the original title deeds for their property, there are still steps they can take to address this situation. If the property is registered, the owners can access digital copies of the title deeds through the Land Registry’s online portal. However, if the property is unregistered, there is additional work involved if the owners intend to sell. In such cases, estate agents will collaborate with the owners and a conveyancing solicitor to acquire proof of ownership. The property can then be registered for the first time with the assistance of the Land Registry.



  • Components of a title plan

A typical title plan includes the following elements:

  • Property boundaries: These are marked with red lines, which can be solid, dashed, or broken depending on the certainty of the boundary.
  • Scale: The title plan displays a specific scale, such as 1:1250 or 1:2500, to ensure accurate representation of the property size.
  • Reference points: Title plans include nearby landmarks, roads, and other reference points to help situate the property within its surroundings.
  • Title number: The unique identifier for the property, which is used to access further details about the land and its ownership.
  • Easements and restrictive covenants: These may be indicated on the title plan, outlining any rights or limitations associated with the property.
