Council land and premises

Information about council land and premises, including how to find out if land is council owned and which council land is for lease or sale.

How can I find out who owns a property?

The Land Registry online enquiry service can provide details of who owns a property. If the land is subject to development proposals you can look at recent planning applications.

Commercial property

All property owned by us that is currently available to buy or rent is advertised by Hindwoods.

Leasehold and freehold

Useful information about leasehold extension can be obtained from the Leasehold Advisory Service. This includes information on buying the freehold through collective enfranchisement.

It is recommended that you get independent legal advice before proceeding. There will also be a further cost dependent upon the valuation of the property in question. Our surveyors and legal fees may also be payable.

Fences and boundary walls

We can advise on council owned properties or a property adjoining a council-owned site. For fences between private properties you should examine your title deeds or contact the Land Registry.


For large scale or multiple property enquiries an administrative charge may be applied.
