We are delighted to announce that HM Land Registry data has been made available within its Promap Labs portal, as part of a time-limited trial that commences today. The trial has been designed to provide a fast and convenient way to obtain land ownership data by selecting a specific area on a map, creating significant efficiencies for land and property developers, and the wider property industry.
For a four-week period, freehold and leasehold Title Numbers, plus proprietorship information for non-private individuals is available to access directly within Promap. For the purpose of the trial, the area available is the NN post-code region, which covers most of Northamptonshire. By accessing the data via Promap Labs, it creates significant efficiencies over the traditional address-searching methods, which require a more manual approach.
Carole Ankers, Product Development Director, Landmark Information Group said, “We are anticipating a huge amount of interest in the HM Land Registry data trial on our Promap Labs portal, as this is something our customers are often asking about. We greatly encourage everyone in the industry to test the functionality and provide as much feedback as possible, so this can be provided to Land Registry for evaluation. The aim is to determine the usability, functionality and whether anything else could be provided, so the Land Registry can shape its future roll-out plans and we can develop the best service in Promap.”
From within Promap Labs, users can define an area or site and initiate a search of the Land Registry database, including details of land registration and Title Numbers. For registered land, it provides instant access to related contact details, making it easy for users to identify non-Private Individual land or property owners.
