The unofficial websites referred to are not illegal while they are not infringing Land Registry trademarks and displaying that they are independent of Land Registry.

Land Registry closely monitors all websites which use their data to charge for services and that can result in the customer paying additional and unnecessary fees. Two websites have been closed down as a result of Land Registry's actions and many others forced to make changes. The only official website is:

www.landregistry.gov.uk
