Land Registration Act 2002

Section 104: General information about land

167.This section gives the registrar power to publish information about land in England and Wales if it appears to him to be information in which there is a legitimate public interest. The registrar already publishes data about changes in property prices on a quarterly basis, and these are widely used. Because all sales of freehold land are required to be registered, the Registry’s figures are the most accurate available. The extension of compulsory registration to leases with seven or more years to run will considerably extend the market data available.
