Land registry create online account to search > private individual property titles as well as company owned
Yesterday the land registry announced, that their Digital Register service is now in private beta.
The new service will allow anyone to view a property register.
So far, they have a limited number of people using the service ,where they can do a basic property search and locate title information. Throughout the beta development, they have continued to test and improve.
In March 2016, they plan to go into public beta, where everyone will be able to use the service. The Land Registry will continue to gather feedback and improve the service. This will meet all the user needs identified during the discovery, alpha and beta phases.
What is the beta phase?
what will be exciting in the future is if a search widget / app is made available so property professional could incorporate it to their sites and also promote the profile and good work at the land registry UK . Currently the data published on the land registry is 3 months old from the date of sale, if this was to shorten to a month / week , it would also benefit the property industry as a whole.
what are they currently working on
A new database for storing property registers. This means they can now show private individual property titles, as well as company owned.
We’re also working on 2 big developments to the service. The first is the ability for users to create an online account. This will allow you to log on and access the different services, e.g. a summary of our data or the whole register.
The second is widening the geographical area that users can view. In the next couple of weeks, more geographical zones will be included, Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Wales and Coventry.
