Reconstruction of Title

About The Service Meet The Team Latest Resources

The Land Registry has a central database with details of all properties in England and Wales that have registered titles. This registration of title has evolved from the old form of recording land ownership – by the possession of the bundle of deeds. If the title to the property is registered at the Land Registry there is not a problem.


What if the title is not registered?

However, if the title is not registered, the bundle of title deeds remains the key proof of ownership and loss of these could be very significant.

If the title deeds to a property have been lost or destroyed before the property has been registered at the Land Registry, then an application to reconstruct the title needs to be made. As you can imagine, this is a very specialist and complex area but our team of specialist land lawyers can help you to prepare this application, pulling together a full account of the circumstances leading up to losing the documents, a full account of the property, often borrowing title documents from nearby registered titles (that may be available through the Land Registry Portal) and obtaining statements of truth showing the location of boundaries and the supporting evidence.
