HM Land Registry
Her Majesty's Land Registry, or HM Land Registry, is the official body responsible for registering the ownership of property and land in England and Wales.
The Land Registry's records for a property will confirm who owns the property, whether it is freehold or leasehold, and whether there is a mortgage. The register will also usually include a boundary plan of the property.
