This layer provides title information (excluding ownership) where there is a data link to one or more primary parcels.
A title is a record of all estates, encumbrances and easements that affect a piece of land. These are now known as Computer Registers incorporating Computer Freehold Registers, Composite Computer Registers, Computer Unit Title Registers and Computer Interest Registers.
This data set removes all ownership fields so that it can be freely distributed. If ownership information is required, the Title & Owners layer and Owners layer; enables this via more restrictive licensing.
An object has been constructed using the parcel shapes where a data link exists. However there can be multiple parcels associated with a title, and a title may only have a part share in a parcel. The constructed shape representing the title will therefore be an aggregation of all parcels that the title is associated with. The ‘spatial extents shared’ attribute when equal to ‘false’ will indicate that title has exclusive interest over all of the shape (this will be case for the vast majority).
The originating data for parcel/title associations includes some non-official sources where the official data does not support a link. For more information see
