How do I find out who owns a piece of land or property if it is not in the Councils ownership?

How do I find out who has responsibility for the boundary to my property?

You should view your property Deeds or registered title for the property. Registered Title documents can be obtained from Land Registry (opens in a new window). If this does not identify the owner consider the following options:

If the adjacent piece of land or property is owned by the Council, we may be able to identify the owner of the boundary.  

If the land is privately owned, and registered, then you should contact the Land Registry (opens in a new window).  If the land is un-registered then the Land Registry will not have the appropriate records and you may need to make local enquiries which may include the appropriate Parish/ Town or District/ City Council.
