Land Registry Compliant Plans

Land Registry Compliant Plans

Marwood Surveyors offers a comprehensive Land Registry plans service (registering official ownership) for a wide variety of residential and commercial properties from retail units and major industrial sites to residential listings.

If a residential boundary changes due to a title split (i.e. if a home owner sells a proportion of their garden) or any new lease that is seven years or longer, has to be registered with the Land Registry and have a compliant lease plan. The lease plan is an accurate drawing that identifies the area of the land that is included in the lease.

We cover the following plans:

  • Leasehold Plans
  • Freehold Title Plans
  • Boundary Plans
  • Estate Plans
  • Conveyance Plans

The following is a summary of the main requirements of a land registry plan to make it compliant:

  • The plan must be drawn true to an appropriate scale (metric only), have its actual scale shown and show its orientation.
  • Any dimensions shown must be in metric units only, to two decimal places.
  • The plan must show sufficient detail to enable the land in the lease (including any garage, bin store or garden ground) to be identified on the Ordnance Survey map and, where appropriate, the landlord’s title plan.
  • The property must be clearly identified by suitable colouring, edging or hatching.
  • Edgings should not be so thick as to obscure any other detail on the plan.
  • Different floor levels must be identified both on the plan as well as in the verbal description in the lease.
  • Disclaimer clauses or notes that the plan is not to scale or is for identification purposes only must not be used; applications based on such plans may be rejected
  • Colour references on the plan must match the text of the deed.
