The Title Register (Folio) contains 4 sections which together include a complete description of the property title owned, that is, sufficient information to identify who owns it, where it is, the extent of land owned, rights that benefit the land and rights that burden it.
Information contained within a Title Register:
Section 1 (A)
Section 1 (A) contains: the Title (Folio) Number (a unique number that all registered properties are allocated), the Tenure, e.g. Freehold or Leasehold, the address or description of the Property, and Appurtenances (Rights benefitting the land).
Section 1 (B)
Section 1 (B) contains: details of parts of the property that have been transferred to another title following a sale of part of the land.
Section 2 contains: the class of Title, e.g. Absolute, the date of purchase, name and address of the owner and the identity of the solicitors acting for the purchaser. Previous registered owners are also shown.
Section 3 contains: particulars relating to burdens and charges, such as leases, covenants, mortgages and fishing rights.
The Title Plan shows an outline of the property in relation to its surroundings, and often (especially with larger properties) has detailed and coloured markings referred to in the Title Register that illustrate rights of way, rights of access, watercourses and sections of land affected by easements and covenants. The general boundaries of the property itself are edged in red, but they do not show the property boundaries with any degree of precision and are intended as a guide only (albeit a good one).
The Title Folio (Register) is the main document of title (often called Title Deed). It contains a description of the property, its tenure, name and address of the owners, purchase price, name & address of mortgagee and details of other charges, covenants, easements, cautions, notices and restrictions.
The Index Map is based on the OSI maps and shows the general neighbourhood of the property so that it can be identified in relation to its neighbouring properties. The Index Map shows the property outlined in red (freehold), green (Leasehold) or purple (Sub-Leasehold) edging. Rights of Way are highlighted in yellow tints.
It is possible to order Title Folios for up to 20 different properties on one form from our web site, attracting a substantial discount from our standard fee.
(e.g. For Land, Fields, Woods, Derelict or Vacant Properties, Lanes, Alleyways)
This is a specialised search where no readily available method of identifying the property by its address or folio number is available, and may take between 5-7 days to complete. Once completed you will have an up to date copy of the Title Folio and Index Map, in addition to other.

Instruments are Deeds from which dispositions (sales, mortgages or similar) affecting the property have been created, e.g. the purchase conveyance. The Title Folio will reveal sufficient Instrument details to identify it, although as the same are not available online it may take up to 10 days to deliver to you.
Instruments often reveal a wealth of detail relating to the property, including full details of covenants, easements, burdens and rights.
The search is usually made following a Title Folio Search, as customers need to identify the Title Folio number and Instrument Number.
