A Land Registry Plan can save you time and money, especially in the case of a dispute. In general, we think that the main benefits of a Land Registry Plan are the added security, clarity and certainty that they provide our clients with.
Security: If your land is unregistered, then it is possible in some circumstances that people could take advantage of your property via third party applications for possession – otherwise known as “Squatter’s Rights.”
Provides Evidence of Ownership: Having evident ownership means that whenever you want to buy, or sell property in the future, you know that all the title information will be with the Land Register, and available online for everyone to see.
Clarity: Registering your property makes it easy for third parties to ascertain who owns a property or land. This will save you time that you would have to spend interpreting and reviewing old deeds to prove your ownership is correct.
Certainty: Land Registry Plans provide you with clear and reliable evidence as to the boundaries of your property. This can help you with any boundary disputes, as well as confirms that your understanding of a property is in line with that shown on the plan.
