Introduction

Title plans are an essential part of the land registration process in England and Wales. They provide a graphical representation of a property’s boundaries and any other features that are relevant to the property’s title, such as easements, covenants, or rights of way. Title plans are used by the Land Registry to record the ownership of land and property, and they can be used to prove ownership of property, resolve disputes, and obtain planning permission.

What is a Title Plan

Why do I need a Title Plan?

There are a number of reasons why you might need a title plan. For example, you may need a title plan if you are:

  • Buying or selling a property
  • Applying for a mortgage
  • Applying for planning permission
  • Dividing property into two or more plots
  • Registering a property with the Land Registry

Title plans can also be helpful if you are involved in a dispute over land ownership. A title plan can provide evidence of the boundaries of your property and any other relevant features.

When do I need a Title Plan?

The Land Registry requires a title plan in a number of situations, including:

  • When you are registering a property for the first time
  • When you are transferring ownership of a property
  • When you are dividing a property into two or more plots
  • When you are applying for planning permission

In some cases, the Land Registry may accept a plan that is not compliant with their standards. However, it is always best to submit a plan that meets the Land Registry’s requirements. This will help to ensure that your application is processed quickly and smoothly. You can find out more information here.
