  9. First Registration/Lost Title Deeds

Registration of title to land was created in 1925 and was phased in, so unregistered land is still common.

The Land Registry encourages registration of title voluntarily by offering a reduced fee for such applications.

There are many advantages to registering title to property:

  • Once registered, title to the property is guaranteed by the government
  • Registration provides a certain amount of protection against claims for adverse possession by third parties
  • The risk of lost or destroyed deeds is eliminated
  • Title to the property is easy to prove, as all registered titles can be viewed electronically. This makes any future sales, transfers or re-mortgages easier, quicker and more straightforward.

We can also assist you if you have lost title deeds.
