In the second of two blog posts about our new pages on GOV.UK, we give some hints to help you find the content you need more easily.

It can take time to get used to a new website. In a previous blog, we talked about how we have continued to develop our new pages on GOV.UK since we went live some three months ago. Here we wanted to give you some quick tips to help you find what you are looking for more quickly.

Getting started

First off, we have created a short video to go through the basics.

Find our pages

The full website address for Land Registry is: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/land-registry.

We also have a shorter one which is easier to remember:
www.gov.uk/land-registry.

Use the top links

We set the links at the top of our homepage based on the most popular things people search for. So if you are looking for one of our services – for example our Business e-services portal, our house price search or property ownership information search – you’ll find them in our top links.

Our top links

If you can’t find it on the home page, search!

If you can’t find the content you need from the home page links, the easiest thing is to use the search function at the very top of the page.

It’s also worth remembering that if you do a search while you’re on Land Registry’s homepage, GOV.UK automatically filters the search results so you only see Land Registry pages.

For example, if you are looking for information about our international services, here are the search results which show up:

international-services---Search---GOV.UK

Looking for a practice guide?

Our practice guides are some of our most used content on the site. We have therefore included a practice guide link at the top of the home page. From here you will go to a list of all of our practice guides ordered by number.

However if you know (for example) that you are looking specifically for practice guide 24: private trusts of land, simply type “PG24” into the search bar on Land Registry’s home page. Practice guide 24 will show up in the search results.

PG24---Search---GOV.UK

Help us help you

We want to make sure that you are able to find the information you need on our GOV.UK pages. If you have any suggestions or feedback, drop us a line
