  • Land Registry is part of Land & Property Services (LPS), formed as an Agency in 2007 but deagentised in 2013. The other parts of LPS are:

    • Valuation & Mapping (formerly Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland);

    • Revenues & Benefits (dealing with payment of rates and rate reliefs); and

    • Business Services (dealing with Corporate Governance).

  • We operate under a private Finance Initiative Contract with British Telecom (BT) – contract for 15 years from 2004 to 2019.

  • Contract was to transform Land Registry from a paper based organisation to an IT based organisation – now almost all work done electronically.

  • Our in-house IT system is Landweb.

  • Our Direct Access Customer System is Landweb Direct – customers can view Folios and Maps on-line but must request copies of other documents.
