Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need to check the price of a property?

To find information for a specific property, you will need to provide the full postcode and name or number of the property.

How long does it take for a recent property sale to appear in the database?

It can take any time between two weeks and two months after the sale of a property before the information is registered with Land Registry and will appear in the records. Occasionally this might take longer, so any information shown in the free property check for the last few months may not be complete.

Are all property sales included the database?

The database includes residential property sales that are registered with HM Land Registry, but doesn't include some transactions, for example:

  • Sales not registered with HM Land Registry
  • Sales not for value
  • Right to Buy sales
  • Gifts
  • Court Orders
  • Compulsory Purchase Orders

How can I get missing information corrected or report an error in the database?

You should report an error to HM Land Registry directly if you have found an error in the data displayed in the free property check.

You will need to provide some additional information to get any corrections made, including:

  • Your contact details
  • The property address
  • The date of sale
  • The sales value
  • Any additional information about the error

How much stamp duty do I need to pay?

You can use the Stamp Duty Calculator to work out the amount of SDLT due on a property purchase.

The calculator is suitable for residential and commercial purchases, along with first time buyers and non-UK residents.
