Boundary Disputes & Land Registry Plans

Land Registry Plans

Target Surveys has been providing Land Registry compliant plans to a range of clients throughout the country for the past 9 years. Since 2002, It is now law that any lease that lasts for seven years or longer must be registered with the appropriate Land Registry Plan. This plan must be in line with the suggested criteria, so it is important that you choose someone who is experienced at producing plans that comply with the guidelines found here.

What Are Boundary Disputes & Land Registry Plans?

A Land Registry Plan is a drawing or diagram that is fully compliant with the Land Registry Practice Guide 40 – this states that all drawing plans must be to a recognised scale and provide enough detail for a property or site to be identified on an Ordnance Survey Map, as well as show any demised or demolished areas.

Land Registry Plans can come in varying formats depending on the reason for your application. Here at Target, we can provide the following and more:

  • Lease Plans
  • Freehold Title Plans
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Estate Plans

Do I Need A Land Registry Plan?

It is likely that you will need A compliant Land Registry Plan if you are looking to change the boundaries of a property you own, or if you are looking to buy or sell a leasehold property in which a lease of more than seven years is being granted for the first time. In some cases, you will also need a Land Registry Plan if you are dividing land into more than two parts, or selling land that was previously unregistered. 

If you are simply buying or selling a leasehold property that has a long lease, and no changes are happening to the boundary, then it is likely a compliant Land Registry Plan will already exist.

Failing to provide a compliant Land Registry Plan can cause your applications to be delayed or rejected, meaning a new plan has to be prepared and submitted – something which is a time-consuming and costly process. 

How Could A Land Registry Benefit My Site?

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.
