Information on property title


Title in relation to property refers to the bundle of rights owned in a piece of property, and different people can own different types of proprietary interests in any one piece of property.

As a consequence, it is essential to carefully investigate the title of any property than you own or are considering purchasing or selling.

In this section you can find information on a wide range of matters, including:

  • Issues to be aware of in relation to property title
  • Investigating title
  • The difference between freehold and leasehold ownership
  • Co-ownership of property (tenancy in common and joint tenancy)
  • Adverse possession and squatters’ rights
  • Conveyance of interests in land

For general information on conveyancing you can find this in our conveyancing section (located within this Property section). For more specific information on related issues of proprietary interests, we have separate sections on deeds, easements and equity release.
