What Constitutes a Land Registry Compliant Lease Plan?

Sunday, 23rd March 2014 | by: Justin Burns

All new leases with terms of 7 or more years or assigned leases with at least 7 years remaining must be registered with Land Registry and to do that a lease plan is required.

A Lease Plan is an appropriately scaled metric drawing depicting the land or part of a building over which the lessee has exclusive or shared access.

For a Lease Plan to be compliant with the requirements of the Land Registry it must include the following:

  • Detailed floor plans at a scale of either 1:100 or 1:200
  • A location plan at a scale of 1:1250
  • A north point
  • A coloured line (usually red for the demise and blue for the common parts) indicating the demise of the subject property.

Some of the situations where a Land Registry Compliant Lease plan will be required are:

  • The first time that a leasehold property is registered.
  • When a leasehold property is sold and there are 7 or more years remaining on the term.
  • When a lease has been extended (technically a new lease with a longer term is granted and must be registered).
  • If the demise of the property changes, for instance if an upper floor flat were extended in to the roof space.
