Change a name on the land register

You can request that we update the land register to reflect a change to your name.

Updating the register is a process controlled by law. You must include sufficient evidence that reflects your new name.

Read detailed guidance on changing your name in the land register.

You cannot change a name on the register to indicate a change of owner. If ownership of a property changes, the plot must be registered under the new owner’s name.
