Land Registry offices closed in Oct 2020

In previous years MHC members would get a letter from the Ministry that allowed members to access the records free of charge. Land registry records are used to research properties and titles. Now that offices have closed this is no longer possible. Access is online only and if you need help learning the system there are good tutorials available.
