Is it because people don't realise what the Land Registry does?
- The Land Registry registers the ownership of land and property in England and Wales.
- Once land or property is registered the Land Registry records any ownership changes, mortgages or leases that affect it.
- They “provide owners with a land title that is underpinned by the state”
- The Land Registry pays millions into the Treasury each year and costs the tax payer nothing!
The Government tried to privatise the Land Registry 18 months ago and an 110,000 signature petition helped the campaign to get it stopped.
