Ownership of a Single Property
Ownership of a property in England and Wales is authenticated from two documents that are created by the Land Registry whenever a property purchase occurs. These two documents are the Title Register and Title Plan. Section B of the Register provides the name and address of the property owners (the registered proprietors) and states the date upon which they were registered and the amount they paid for the property.
The Register provides a considerable amount of important detail relating to the property ownership. The main function of the Title Plan is to show the extent of the property within the ownership and to illustrate parts of the property that may be affected by rights of way and covenants.
