What are your intentions and aims with regards to the land please?
Thanks. Where land is unregsitered there is by definition no central database or record that holds information about the land. Rather with unregistered land it is a question of detective work which will often not lead anywhere because either records have been lost
You can carry out a land charges search if you have names of any individuals that sold or acquired the land can can potentially produce some useful information but this requires you to have names of individuals relating to the land to do so.
You can carry out a land charges search using the following form:
You can contact your local records office which may have information regarding the land. Sometimes title deeds or copies of title deeds or failing which information about the history of land can be deposited with them.

Finally the local authority may have some information regarding the land. You can make an appointment with the land charges department to find out what records the council hold.
None of the above approaches guarantee any degree of success and it is often not possible to ascertain the owner of unregistered land. Where this is the case one can occupy the land. If one can occupy land for 12 years of more then you can make a claim for adverse possession of the land. Maintenance of boundary structures is a key component of a claim for adverse possession.
