Terms of Service
By using our online services, you agree to be bound by these Terms & Conditions.
We are an independent company, which has a direct access link into the HM Land Registry’s records, and provide a Land Registry search service for conveyancing purposes. We are not affiliated or connected in any way with the UK Government. The documents that we provide are official copies as held at the Land Registry. We are not responsible for any errors contained within the documentation or information contained within it. The documentation is provided “as is”. Neither we nor any third party shall be liable to you or any third party for any loss or damage, direct, indirect or consequential, arising from (i) any inaccuracy or incompleteness in, or delays, interruptions, errors or omissions in the delivery of the data or any other information supplied to you through our services or (ii) any decision made or action taken by you or any third party in reliance upon the data. Neither we nor any third party shall be liable for loss of business revenues, lost profits or any punitive, indirect, consequential, special or similar damages whatsoever, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, even if advised of the possibility of such damages incurred by you or any third party. Any queries relating to the use of this information should be directed to email@example.com.
The documentation and information is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and all ownership rights remain with the information service provider or the third party or LandRegistrySearches.com, as the case may be. You may not copy, distribute, modify, reproduce, post, transmit or frame in this site including text, graphics, video, audio, software code, user interface design or logos without the prior written consent of LandRegistrySearches.com.
Transmission may be subject to arbitrary delays beyond our control, which may delay the provision of our services and the execution of your orders. You acknowledge that neither any information service provider, third party nor we will be liable to you or any third party for any losses arising from such delay.
Upon receipt of your order, a “Form Assistant” will check the details and contact you if we are unable to identify the property or land. When the property has been properly identified, we will undertake a search of the Land Registry records in order to establish whether the property is registered (i.e. has a Title Number assigned to it). If the property is registered (noting that the vast majority of properties are registered), we will obtain official copies of the Title Register and/or Title Plan (as held at the Land Registry) and issue the document(s) to you by email (or by post when necessary – see below) and in PDF format. The vast majority of orders that we receive are processed within 1 working hour (please note that our working hours are 8.00am – 10.00pm Monday to Friday and 9.00am – 5.30pm Saturdays and Sundays); during exceptionally busy periods the processing of orders may take longer. You are agreeing to pay LandRegistrySearches.com to carry out a search to establish whether the property is registered with the HM Land Registry and has a Title Number assigned to it and if it is registered, to obtain an official copy of the Register and/or Title Plan. Please note that in some cases, a search of the Index Map may be necessary in order to establish whether the property is registered; noting that an Index Map Search may take several days to conclude.
In the event that the documents are not available electronically (for instance when a property covers a large area of land, such as a farm estate, then it may not be possible to deliver a Title Plan to you electronically) they will, therefore, be posted to you; in such an event there may be a delay of several days (typically 3 working days) before you receive the document(s).
The Title Register should be read in conjunction with the Title Plan.
You agree to pay the fee for the service provided to you. All services must be paid for in advance and by credit/debit card. When you pay for the service it will be via Paypal payment card processing service.

Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.

When refunds are agreed, any charges that we have incurred will be deducted from the amount to the refunded.
