Hi Alex, the information is accurate. My name is***** and the information shown in the links is taken from the Land Registry and seems correct or at least it is regarding the apartment I've purchased, my names and my wife's too.
And the information at the Land Registry is public information too isn't it?
As far as I know the information can be accessed from the Land Registry website paying £3, the difference is that you get the owner details by looking into a specific property/apartment, not the other way around. I can't know from the Land Registry which apartments belong to Boris Johnson to make an example.
Its bad news then I am afraid.
If the information being published is a matter of public record you may struggle getting it removed.
The only thing I can think of is if you complain to the Information Commissioner.
They investigate breaches of the Data Protection Act and can take action and prosecute where necessary. Their website is: www.ico.gov.uk
But the ICO may be able to deal with this for you.
Of course in terms of search engines you can go to a website such as www.guru.com and get a developer to produce a load of web pages.
This means your main links wont appear on Page 1 of Google and its very rare someone looks on page 2
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Terms and Condition in the Land Registry website seems pretty clear to me, the information you access there are for personal use only, not to be disclosed. Its is not the same but If I buy an mp3 in amazon I'm free to do so but I can't make that mp3 available in my website
Ok - then that is why you should complain to the ICO.
They may be able to take action for you.
ok, I will
But if its against the Land Registry terms it is for the Land Registry to take action
You can't sue for breach of terms on behalf of the Land Registry unless they appoint you as agent.
Does that help?
Yes thanks, ***** ***** contact ico.gov.uk
Great. Can I clarify anything else for you today?
That's all, thanks
Great. Can I help with anything else at all today for you?
