The title plan, or boundary plan, of a property is a document that sets out the approximate boundaries of the property.
Title plan documents are held at the Land Registry.
The Land Registry's copy of the title plan may not be exact, and there is often no record of precise boundaries between properties. Ownership of hedges, walls or fences on the boundary may also be unclear.
Your solicitor will investigate any obvious discrepancies between the title plan and the other title documents. However, you should also ensure that you have checked the plan yourself to confirm that it corresponds to the land or property you are buying.
