Land Ownership Types

Another quick educational piece for our readers this week around the area of property law. Today we look at the three property types and what defines each.

1. Commercial Property

Commercial property is any area of land or building which sees a return for its owner.  In most cases commercial property is more expensive then residential as it’s function is to yield a monetary return and the valuation usually takes potential earnings into consideration.

2. Residential Property

A residential property is a building which is suitable for use as a dwelling or is being developed for this purpose.

3. Unregistered Land

Unregistered land is land which has not been registered with HM land and registry. This can take the form of, among other things, abandoned buildings and waste land. Just because land is unregistered does not mean it does not have an owner but that HM land and registry has not been made aware of the land owner.
