Transfer of Whole of Registered Title on Form TR1
The PROP.MAN.115 - Transfer of Whole of Registered Title on Form TR1 is the form prescribed by the Land Registry to transfer land from seller to buyer.
The up to date version of it can be found on the government website by clicking on this link to the relevant page: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/registered-titles-whole-transfer-tr1 .
The document can be downloaded as a word document or a PDF. Once you have opened the document in your preferred format, you should save a copy to a location of your choice. Simply enter the relevant details in the blank spaces and check the boxes where appropriate. The remainder of the form (including the notes) should not be altered as it is in the Land Registry’s standard format.
This Form TR1 should be used where the seller is transferring the whole of the land comprised in a registered title. If only part of the land is being transferred, the Transfer of Part (Form TP1) should be used instead.
