Your Title Deeds
The Title Register is one of the 2 main documents of title (often called Title Deeds). It contains a description of the property, its tenure, name and address of the owners, purchase price (if bought after April 2000), name & address of mortgagee and details of other charges, covenants, easements, cautions, notices and restrictions. It is possible to order Title Registers and/or Title Plans for up to 20 different properties on one form from our web site, attracting a substantial discount from our standard fee.
The Title Plan is the other main document of title. It shows a detailed outline of the property in relation to its surroundings, and often (especially with larger properties) has detailed and coloured markings referred to in the Title Register that illustrate rights of way, rights of access, watercourses and sections of land affected by easements and covenants. The general boundaries of the property itself are edged in red.
