Land ownership

Information on land ownership, including how you can find out if the council owns a piece of land.

Can you tell me who owns this piece of land?

General information on land ownership should be sought from the Land Registry:

Land Registry (external website)

There may be some constraints on the type of information that can be provided in terms of confidentiality, data protection or for other legal reasons.

Can you tell me if this land is council owned?

We may be able to tell you if the land is council owned.

Contact us online to make an enquiry.

Alternatively, you can email us: terrier@eastriding.gov.uk.

When making your enquiry please provide a description of the location you are interested in and your contact details which will only be used to enable us to process and respond to your enquiry. However, should you require more information on how we handle your personal data there is a general privacy notice available to refer to.

There may be some constraints on the type of information that can be provided in terms of confidentiality, data protection or for other legal reasons.

What information can you provide?

We provide information relating to land and property in the council's ownership, leases, easements, wayleaves and boundary responsibilities.

How can I find out about whose responsibility the maintenance of a boundary is?

If the property is owned, managed or maintained by the council then we will investigate and provide what information we are able to. Many deeds do not have information on boundary responsibilities, even if adjoining land is council owned. Further information may be in your title deeds or provided by the Land Registry:

There may be some constraints on the type of information that can be provided in terms of confidentiality, data protection or for other legal reasons.

If this property is council owned would I be able to purchase, rent or maintain it?

You will need to consult the valuation and estates section who will handle the enquiry and negotiate the price or rent should the property you are interested in be available.
