Why is a property transaction not listed?
If you cannot find a specific property transaction, the most probable reason is that you are searching with an incorrect postcode. If you have searched thoroughly by postcode and by address and have not found the transaction you are looking for, there are three possible reasons for it not being listed. Firstly, that the transaction took place recently and has not yet been processed by Land Registry. In this case the details will be available shortly. The recording process normally takes a couple of months. In rare instances (and cases of dispute) this process can last for much longer. A second possible reason is that the property might not be recorded in the Land Registry electronic dataset. This can be the case if a property has not been bought or sold since 1995. The final possible explanation is that through error, the Land Registry may not have added the details to their database.
