Land ownership enquiry

We maintain a property terrier, which is a record of property owned or leased by the council. The terrier is a collection of maps and legal records of properties that the council has an interest in.

We can quickly check the terrier to see whether a property is in our ownership. If it is then we can put you in touch with the relevant department responsible.

Contact the terrier officer on 01432 383362 or email 

Please provide:

  • The full postal address, including post code, of the property
  • An Ordnance Survey (OS) grid reference
  • A location plan with the property or area highlighted 
  • Any other information you feel is relevant

If the property is not council owned, contact the Land Registry who hold national records of all registered land ownership.
