Over the past few months, we’ve been moving our content over to the single government website GOV.UK. It’s the new place to find information on all government services – it’s simpler, clearer and faster to search and find content.


All government services are under one roof. As an example, if you search for ‘land registration’ you’ll notice that it’s not just our content that is displayed in results. GOV.UK will give you relevant information across all government agencies and departments, for example, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) guidance on voluntary registration of land as a town or village green.

Here’s what’s happening over the next couple of weeks:

  • Until 19 August both GOV.UK and the Land Registry website will be running in parallel until all relevant content has been moved;
  • On 20 August we’ll switch off our existing Land Registry website (http:/www.landregistry.gov.uk); and
  • On 20 August our official corporate website will be GOV.UK, where you’ll find information about HM Land Registry and other government services.

Don’t Worry

Once we have completed the transition, existing web addresses and bookmarks will take you to the right place on GOV.UK, or direct you to an archived page on The National Archives if content is no longer available.

Our portal for Business e-services customers and Find a property will not be moving.
