Searching the registers

You can search the land register for free to:

  • find property prices
  • view property boundaries on a map
  • check if a property is on the land register

If you can't find your property on the land register, you can ask us to conduct a search.

We charge an initial fee of £30 plus VAT per request to include one plain copy deed, or nil return.

This initial fee applies only where there is a full postal address, including postcode.

Should you wish to order any additional copy deeds identified, you can order these at a cost of £25 plus VAT each.

We’ll let you know the cost of all identified deeds before we complete your search.

Non-addressable search information

You can use our land title investigation service to request a search for areas of non-addressable land or property.

Investigations are charged at £60 + VAT per area outlined.

If there are more than three titles within the area submitted, RoS charge an additional fee of £54 + vat per hour, we will get in touch before proceeding if this is the case.
