About the land register

The land register is our main register.  It records ownership of land and property in Scotland.

Introduced in 1981, the land register is based on the Ordnance Survey map. It provides property owners with a state-backed guarantee of title.

The register is map based and you can search the register to:

  • find out the extent of your, or any other property on the register
  • buy property documents
  • search for property information
