If a property is to be let for longer than 7 years, it is a legal requirement to register the lease with the Land Registry. The lease must also have a Land Registry Compliant Plan that outlines the demise.
There are other reasons why you may need a Land Registry Compliant Plan, including:
- When a property has been converted into multiple properties (flats)
- When a piece of land is being split into two or more parts to be let (for more than 7 years)
- When land that has never been previously registered is being sold
- When there is a grant of any easement over registered property (unless it relates to the whole of a registered title).
For a plan to be Land Registry Compliant, it must:
- Be drawn to scale
- Be based on a metric scale measurement
- Include a bar scale rule
- Show its orientation (have a north point on the plan)
- Have a detailed ordnance map with at least two roads labelled (location plan)
- Have any rights of way shaded in brown
