What a search can tell you

You can search our registers to find information about any property or land in Scotland.

Most titles in Scotland will either be held on the Land Register of Scotland or the General Register of Sasines.

The register will determine the information we can provide about the property.

You can search the land register by postcode for free.

The information available may include:

  • the current owners
  • the last selling price
  • any existing mortgage details
  • the boundaries of the property
  • any conditions affecting the property

If your property isn't on the land register, or you're searching for an area of land, you can ask us to conduct a search.

What we can't tell you

Our registers can’t tell you:

  • who built a property, in most cases
  • a phone number for a property's current owner
  • how many bedrooms a property has
  • details of alterations or building works on a property

We can tell you when the property was first registered, but not when it was first built.

We can only guarantee you’ll receive a plan if the property is registered in the land register.

We may not be able to provide you with a plan for sasine-registered titles, but we will be able to provide you with a deed that contains the best boundary description of the property or area.

We do not hold birth, death or marriage certificates. Request these from the National Records of Scotland.
