Voluntary First Registrations

Voluntary first registration is a process through which a property owner can choose to register their property with the Land Registry for the first time, even if there is no legal requirement to do so.

In England and Wales, only about 88% of the land mass is currently registered with the Land Registry. If you own unregistered land, you might want to consider voluntary first registration.

Voluntary first registration can offer benefits including establishing ownership and providing clarity regarding the boundaries of your property. It can also help to simplify future transactions and help protect you against any adverse possession claims.

Whether you're planning to sell your property in the near future and wish to avoid any potential delays or simply seek the peace of mind that comes with having your land fully registered, our team of expert property lawyers specialising in unregistered land can assist you every step of the way.

Why Voluntary First Registration?

There are several reasons why you might want to consider voluntary first registration for your property. Firstly, it can help you avoid delays when it comes time to sell. Having your property registered can streamline the process and make it more attractive to potential buyers.

Secondly, knowing that your land is fully registered can provide peace of mind. It ensures that your ownership is clearly established, reducing the risk of any disputes in the future.

Lastly, voluntary registration ensures that your property complies with the Land Registry requirements. This can be particularly important if you are planning any future development or alterations to your land.
