HM Land Registry registers legal ownership, interests, mortgages and other secured loans against land and property in England and Wales.

The Register of Title does not record the nationality or employment status of individual title owners of land or property.

The Register of Title records information where a non-UK Government is the registered owner, and the People’s Republic of China is the registered owner of 60 titles in the Greater London boundary.
