The Land Registry hold detailed plans for all properies to show the ownership of land and the buildings built upon it. This is often called the "Title".
When changes are made to a Property's Title that result in the current Land Registry Plans becoming invalid, new plans are required to be registered with the Land Registry.
There are requirements that govern what features need to be included in a Land Registry Plan for it to be compliant.
Formulating a Land Registry compliant plan entails a site inspection, a land survey and production of a plan based on the ordnance survey.
To avoid any Registration pitfalls and to be sure of a compliant plan, contact Allied Surveyors to discuss your needs.
