    First Registration

    All land and property ownership in England and Wales is subject to a system of registration. However, 20% of all land remains unregistered.

    There are significant benefits to registration and our conveyancing team will be happy to investigate whether your own property is registered and, if not, help you make an application to do so.

    From a purely practical point of view, registration makes complete sense. If you remain unregistered, you need to keep your deeds safe to prove your title. Each and every individual document is important and losing any of them can cause difficulties, delays and additional expense.

    First registration, multiple benefits

    In addition to simplicity, certainty and security, then, the main advantages to voluntarily registering your property include:

    • Title guarantee
    • Fraud prevention
    • Title plan
    • Deeds storage
    • Reduced Land Registry fee

    First, register your interest

    Director and Property Solicitor Michael Fahy reviews the advantages and disadvantages of owning a property to which the title is unregistered in our unregistered title to property article.

    There are many other benefits to registration, which our experienced team of conveyancing experts will readily explain, so if you’d like help making an application. If you are unsure as to whether your property is registered, this can be easily checked by your solicitor carrying out a search at the Land Registry and if you need any help with reviewing the title deeds or applying for the first registration of the title to your property please contact a member of our specialist property team by calling 01603 598000 or by emailing realestate@steeleslaw.co.uk.
