Property Titles - First Registration

We sometimes come across properties or parcels of land which have not yet been registered with Land Registry.  This is often found when dealing with a deceased estate where the property was lived in since before title numbers were allocated by Land Registry.

In order to transfer the ownership of the land or property it must firstly be registered with a valid title number. This is a fairly simple process provided that the owner can provide proof of ownership. If the property has ever been subject of a mortgage then it's almost certainly already been registered, but in some cases where a cash sale was transacted it ay be that the title number was never allocated. Often, we discover that title was not sought it's during the Probate process when a transfer to beneficiaries is to be implemented.

What's Involved?

It's a fairly straightforward process and we would require proof of ownership along with an indication of the boundaries of the land or property involved.

During our preliminary searches we would usually be able to see the boundaries and this is useful to then process the required documentation and submit to Land Registry.

Once the process is completed, we would receive written confirmation of the Title number which would then allow the sale or transfer of the property involved.

How much does it Cost?

Now that's a very good question, and we are glad you asked.

We charge a fee of £795.00 to implement this facility for you. 

Our fee includes all searches, completion of forms and submission of the final application.
