Is there a web site (land registry?) to see plot size?

Discussion in 'UK DIY' started by Mike Mitchell, Jul 15, 2004.

  1. How can I see the outline plot of a property? I want to try and get
    some rough measurements of the size/shape of the plot of a property
    I'm interested in.

    Click on OS Large Scale Maps - there's several levels of detail. You
    can order and receive by email.

    This is my experience only - I went to the land registry office and they
    got the maps out for me , showing my property boundaries and the current
    ownership details. I am not sure they have these things to view online ,
    although I think you can purchase copies nine.

    I also went to the local council , initially to find out about any planning
    proposals in the vicinity and found out to my surprise that they had full
    plans of my house and property . They told me they kept records of anything
    built after the town and country planning act of 1948 - in reality most of
    their records were from 1951 onwards since it was slow off the ground.

    So you could try your planning dept as well. I paid a fiver to the planning
    office for a copy of the house plans and maps of the property, just because
    I was interested in the details

    I work for the Scottish Land Registry but I'm thinking you're in England
    right? - we have an online version of our land register up here where you
    can log on a print an ordnance survey scale plan of the property - sorry but
    I can't remember if you can do the same with HMLR.

    Failing that they should be able to provide you with a paper based copy on
    request (for a fee).

    The service is called Registers Direct, which is really aimed at those
    doing regular searching (info at
    http://www.ros.gov.uk/solicitor/rd.html) - you can do online ordering of
    searches from http://www.ros.gov.uk/citizen/propsearch.html but I don't
    think you can get the OS plan online, only by post/fax.

    Thanks David, recently had to do a search in person & it was very easy,
    but may register in case I have to any in the future as they don't charge to
    register, only to search - shame they don't take credit cards tho. Still no
    mention of mapping, even in the solicitors' section (Registers Direct), do
    you think that is restricted to personal visits? I imagine if you work there
    you can access the whole suite of information & registers direct users
    have access to just a selection of the full set?

    I just tried it & I don't understand probably 50% of the text!
    It's quite useful for finding postcodes though :)

    I don't think they let the general public register to use it. I don't
    know if there's a reason for that, other than its payment system doesn't
    allow for prepayment of searches and they probably don't trust anyone
    other than the professional users to run up bills.

    It lets users download and print (but not save) the full title plan, and
    any supplementary plans, which are identical to what you'd get in a hard
    copy from the registers. That's assuming it's a property registered in
    the Land Register - if it's still in the Sasines register then there's
    only online register to the search sheets (i.e. the indices) but not the
    deeds (and any plans) themselves.
