Land Registry Lease Plans

When do I need a lease plan?


A lease plan is basically a scaled metric drawing that illustrates exactly what area of land is included in the lease. 

There are a number of reasons why you may be required to obtain a lease plan. These include:

  • A section of land is being split into two or more parts and sold.

  • A lease of seven years or more is being granted.

  • Land forming part of a registered title or that has been previously unregistered is being sold.

All drawings must be Land Registry Compliant.

We can create lease plans for residential and commercial purposes 


Prices start from £69

What does Land Registry Compliant mean?


All drawings must be compliant to the guidelines set out by the Land Registry to ensure consistency. To be compliant with the Land Registry guidelines, a lease plan must:

  •  Be drawn to scale (preferred scales of 1/1250 – 1/500 for urban properties and 1/2500 for rural properties).

  • Clearly indicate its orientation.

  •  Not be marked as ‘for identification only’ or any other disclaimers 

  • Have sufficient detail to be identified on the Ordnance Survey map 

  • Be clearly identifiable with regards to location (i.e. it must show roads, road junctions or other landmarks around the land) 

  • Include any land associated with the property, such as the garage, garden. 

  • Show buildings in their correct position as well as drives or pathways if they form part of property boundaries 

  •  Clearly indicate the separate parts of the property, such as the house, parking, dustbin space, etc. 

  • Identify any varying floor levels (where required) 

  •  Pull out any intricate boundaries on a larger scale or inset plan 

  • Show measurements that correspond to scaled measurements (as much as possible)
