Unregistered land

Land measurement for planning and development purposes, Guidance Note, Global 1st edition, Published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in May 2021 defines unregistered land as: ‘Land that has not been registered with a land registry or cadastre. The owner of unregistered land will often have a bundle of deeds that form a record of previous sales, mortgages and other dealings with the land. However, if the land is mortgaged, the lender normally holds the deeds as security for their loan. There is usually no public record of the information contained in the deeds, although in some jurisdictions there may be a registry of deeds.’
