land certificate

land certificate

a document issued by the Land Registry to the proprietor of land, the title to which is governed by the Land Registration Acts; the certificate constitutes evidence of the proprietor's title rather than the title itself Where title to land is subject to the Land Registration Acts, a land certificate is the document giving details of the title (i.e. a description of the land, the number of the title, the persons registered as proprietor). Although the entries on the Register constitute the actual title to the land, the land certificate is evidence thereof and is usually required to be deposited with lenders when the land is mortgaged. A very similar system has existed in respect of registered land in Scotland where the title is guaranteed by the state, since 1979. See also TORRENS SYSTEM.
