The Title Register is one of the 2 main documents of title (often called Title Deeds), the other document being the Title Plan.

The Title Register contains a description of the property, its tenure, the name and address of the owners, purchase price, details of mortgages and other charges, covenants, rights of way and other easements.
A Title Number will be visible on the Title Register this is a unique number assigned to a parcel of land by Land Registry upon first registration of title to that land. The title number usually comprises two parts: an alphabetic code (of up to three letters) to signify the geographic area (eg. a county) in which the land parcel is located; and a sequential number (of up to 6 digits) to uniquely identify the parcel within that geographic area.

The title register contains the details relating to the property. Each title register is in three parts:

• property register – a description of the property and any rights that may benefit the property
• proprietorship register – who owns the property and any restrictions upon their power to deal with the property charges register
• Further information such as mortgages or rights that may adversely affect the property.

There is also a title register extract; this is a summary of information taken from the title register. It includes the: title number address price or value stated (for most transactions registered on or after 1st April 2000) registered owner lender of any registered charges (mortgages). A full copy of the title register accompanies the extract and you should read that in order to be sure that the summary is complete. Neither the extract nor the accompanying title register is an ‘official copy’. An Official copy of the title register is admissible in evidence in a court to the same extent as the original. A person is entitled to be indemnified by the registrar if he suffers loss by reason of a mistake in an Official copy. You can obtain an official copy by post from Land Registry by downloading and completing a form OC1 from the Land Registry website.
