Title: Finding land owners
Post by: Jay on February 04, 2010, 11:58:55 AM

 Hi all,
 I have searched and cant find any info on finding land owners, maybe haven't searched well enough, apologies
 if thats the case.

 Would I be correct in thinking that I first need to get a ordnance survey map, and then take it to some one in the council
 and then enquire who owns such land?

 Or am I way off the mark.

 Cheers,

 Jay.

Depends on where and what land you're looking at.

I would try and find a local farm if I was you. You do not neccessarily need to be next to a castle.

Use Google earth

1/ Zoom in on your Village
2/ Type in the search box 'Farms'
3 The farms in your area will flag up red
4/ Click on a Red flag and you'll have the name of farm , farmers name, postcode and Telephone number.
5/ Phone farmer introduce yourself politely and ask if you coud detect on his farm

Job Done

If there is no obvious owner, then the best way to find ownership is through the land registry,
https://www.landregistry.gov.uk/wps/portal/Property_Search (https://www.landregistry.gov.uk/wps/portal/Property_Search)
It does cost 4 per search but is well worth it.
