    If the property you own is registered with the Land Registry (it will be if you bought it or obtained a mortgage on it, after 1998) you normally have to pay £3 on-line to get a copy of the title. But this cannot be used for legal purposes; for that, you need to pay £7 and submit an application by post using the following form...


    But there is a way to avoid the £7 fee for the official copies of register and, at the same time, protect yourself from fraud. All you have to do is fill in the following form, adding address(es) for service. You can use email addresses too, so that if anyone changes the title, you will get informed immediately.

    It may take a few weeks to get the official copies of title so don't use this free route if you need proof of title for an imminent visa application. Here is how to get your free copy of title by updating your contact details...


    I think this is well worth doing as you save £7 and also help protect yourself against fraud! But remember, it does not stop a fraudster changing the title to your property - you just get alerted in that unfortunate event!

    If you wish to protect your valuable asset even more, you can go the whole hog and spend £40 to prevent someone from changing the title to your property...


    If you don't actually live in the property that you wish to protect the £40 is waived.

    Yep, I got a copy after next door landlord tried to snatch part of my front garden. Cheeky bugger.
