What is first registration of a property?

First registration is the process of registering a property with the Land Registry for the first time. It typically occurs when a property has never been registered before, such as newly built properties or properties undergoing a change in ownership.

Why do I need to register my property for the first time?

Registering your property with the Land Registry provides you with a clear and indisputable record of ownership. It offers protection against potential property disputes and ensures that your ownership rights are legally recognised and protected.

How do I know if my property needs to be registered for the first time?

Properties in England and Wales are not always registered automatically, especially if they have not changed ownership or undergone significant transactions in the past. You may need to register your property for the first time if it has never been registered before or if you are undergoing a change in ownership.

The specific documents required for first registration can vary depending on the circumstances of the property and the transaction. However, typical documents include proof of ownership, title deeds, identity documents, and any relevant legal agreements or consents.

While it's not a legal requirement to use a solicitor for first registration, having professional legal assistance can streamline the process and ensure that all documentation is completed accurately and efficiently. A solicitor can also provide valuable advice and guidance throughout the process.

How long does first registration take?

The timeframe for completing first registration can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the property title and the efficiency of all parties involved. On average, the process can take several weeks to several months to submit an application. Once the application is with the Land Registry this can take anywhere from 3 months to 2 years to be registered (depending on the Land Registry turn around times).
