What is Voluntary Registration?


Where an owner chooses to register unregistered land. There is no compulsory requirement to register unregistered land at the Land Registry unless a “trigger event” such as a sale, mortgage or other transaction occurs. There can be benefits of having your land registered, such as a state-backed guarantee, protection against fire and lost Title Deeds. The Land Registry offers a reduced fee for voluntary registrations.
