Spy on your neighbours with new online tool

The Land Registry have now made it possible to access all kinds of housing information for all kinds of people though a new Website. Since 3 December 1990 the public have been able to access information from the register of title (including title plans) in England and Wales. This means you can find out who owns a house and how much they paid for it, amongst other things. And from today, for only £2 a hit, you can gain online access to how much Tony Blair paid for his home, who holds his mortgage and even the plans of his house. Following the success of a 2 year pilot scheme, details of more than 19 million properties are now available online at Peter Collis, the chief executive of Land Registry said: “We look forward to the site becoming the starting point for every member of the public who is interested in the property market.” But for many, the site will no doubt start life as an enticing voyeuristic tool. For instance, football fans will be interested to know that England Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson paid £2.55 million for his home in Regents Park and has a mortgage with Coutts Finance. If they want to see the plans however, they’ll have to log on. UKFast is not responsible for the content of external Internet sites.
