A new feature has been added to our free-to-use web-based MapSearch service.

MapSearch allows Business e-services customers to quickly establish whether land and property in England or Wales is registered.

You can view the location of the registered land or property and obtain title numbers and details of freehold or leasehold tenure and other registered interests.

The new ‘Snapshot’ feature enables you to save an electronic Land Registry-branded copy of any result you have viewed in MapSearch.

The printable PDF file shows title numbers, tenure and the property address.

Launched in March, MapSearch is already attracting more than 3,400 visits and more than 6,000 searches each day.

All you need to use MapSearch is an internet connection, a standard internet browser and a Land Registry portal account.

To access the service log into the portal and select MapSearch from the ‘Information Services’ menu on the left-hand side of the portal home page.

MapSearch was created by working with customers to ensure it met your needs and we will continue to enhance it in response to your suggestions. Please look out for further announcements.
