Laws introduced in 2003 mean that any new lease lasting seven years or longer must be registered with the Land Registry and have a compliant lease plan.
The lease plan is basically a drawing that identifies what area of land is included in the lease.
There are several reasons why you may need to obtain a lease plan, including:
- A lease of seven or more years is being granted
- Land that is part of a registered title or that was previously unregistered is bsing sold
- An area of land is being splt in to two or more parts and sold
To be compliant with the Land Registry guidelines, a lease plan must:
- Be drawn to scale (preferred scales of 1/1250 - 1/500 for urban properties and 1/2500 for rural properties) Specific section may be at a smaller scale for clarity
- Clearly indicate its orientation (e.g. depict a north point)
- Not be marked as 'for identification only' or any other disclaimers
- Have sufficient detail to be identified on the Ordnance Survey map
- Be clearly identifiable with regards to location (i.e. it must show roads, road junctions or other landmarks around the land)
- Include any land associated with the property, such as the garage, garden.
- Show buildings in their correct position as well as drives or pathways if they form part of property boundaries
- Clearly indicate the separate parts of the property, such as the house, parking, dustbin space, etc.
- Identify any varying floor levels (where required)
- Pull out any intricate boundaries on a larger scale or inset plan
- Show measurements that correspond to scaled measurements (as much as possible)
