We are about to purchasing a flat in Erith. Conveyancing is not yet done but we wish to have our transaction price a secret from sites such as Zoopla. How could this be done?
HMLR as a matter of law bound to specify price sold data on a register of the title for residential properties nationwide including properties in Erith. The Title Register is an open document, so HMLR would be breaching their statutory duty if they did not allow access to the register.
You can make a request of the Land Registry to withhold the amount paid data but the response would be in the negative.
