Why Can't I Discover Who Owns A Property?

Recommended Posts

I provided the full address on the HMRC website. 

But it says property details incorrect/not enough information. The property is a leasehold maisonette built in 1970. 

But because it is leasehold, would that preclude the website from providing the leaseholder's details?

1. Not 'HMRC', I think, but 'HMLR'!

2. A long lease granted after land registration began (late 1970 in most of Sheffield; or 1974 for the areas added in Stocksbridge/Wortley) triggered compulsory registration It's the date of the lease that counts- not the date when the flat was built.

3. If the landlord's ownership (probably freehold reversion) remains unregistered, there nevertheless ought to be a leasehold title.

If the property has a leasehold title record at Land Registry ,  it should show the name of  a leaseholder.  Have you checked registered details of  the other flats in the  same building  ?

 

If the  computer  records  system operated by Land Registry ,  does not give any  name,     you should visit the Land Registry  Office for your town or city  and ask the LR Customer Service Officer..

Had a similar issue trying to identify the owner of a field sold a few years ago.  Gave a precise grid reference for a point well inside the field but ‘not sufficient information’.
