1st Locate services include assisting our customers find the owners of unregistered land, property and buildings in England and Wales. A search of the England or Wales Land Registry may have produced a result stating that the land or building is unregistered and HMLR therefore holds no further information. We will undertake a detailed search and identify the current owners and provide you with a current contact address. This may involve tracing the owners to a new address or even tracing the beneficiaries or legatees in the event that the former owner has died. In Scotland, although all land is technically registered, there are many disused or derelict buildings and even land that has remained unused for many years. Some owners may not even be aware that they still own such plots. We can quickly and efficiently trace the current owners and provide you with their contact address. The search can take from 1 - 8 weeks dependant on the options specified on your order. In some cases, this may take longer but you will be fully informed of progress. If we are successful, the fee is 150 - a small price to pay in the event that you might be able to purchase the property. If we are unsuccessful (i.e we do not identify ownership), the fee is 25 but you will be provided with a report detailing all of the steps that we have taken. A search will continue until either we successfully resolve or we cannot identify ownership or you cancel in writing. Cases cancelled will be subject to the reduced fee of 25 provided the cancellation is received in writing prior to our resolution of the case.

Remember, if land or property is UNREGISTERED then there are 2 possible scenarios:

1/. The property is owned by an individual(s)/organisation but the title has never been recorded or registered with HM Land Registry.


2/. The property is ownerless. In the vast majority of instances, the property/land is owned but the title not registered.

The 1st Locate unregistered land investigation is an ideal way to identify ownership with a very high success rate of cases successfully resolved. The service is successfully used by Solicitors, Developers and private purchasers and is often the only way of identifying ownership for unregistered land or property. We believe this is a unique service and is undertaken by highly experienced Researchers using a variety of investigative techniques, research and where appropriate site visits.
