Office copy entries (official register entries)

Official copies of the register of the property at the land registry.

When purchasing a property the buyer will want to be assured that the property belongs to the seller and that it is as described in the contract.  The solicitor acting for the intending buyer would send a form to the HM Land Registry requesting a set of Office Copy Entries of the Land Certificate or Register.  These are known as Official Copies of the Register meaning that the proposed buyer and his or her solicitor can rely on the documents as if they were originals.

The entries would state, among other things, the full names of the present owners of the property and describe the property.  In some cases the description of the property would be supported by an Official Plan of the property.   The entries would also reveal if the property was charged (held as security for a mortgage or loan) to a bank or building society.
