Form PN1 "Application for a Search of the Index of Proprietors' Names" - United Kingdom

What Is Form PN1?

Form PN1, Application for a Search of the Index of Proprietors' Names, is a formal document used to find the name of a specific individual in the Land Registry records in order to learn whether they own or mortgage any properties. This application can be used by private citizens, solicitors, and legal advisers. If you are interested in a particular person, you have to show you have the right to look for their property records - otherwise, the request will be rejected since the government will not disclose the personal data of proprietors to an unauthorized individual.

This form was released by United Kingdom HM Land Registry, its latest version became available on May 1, 2018. You can download a fillable PN1 Form through the link below.
