Final paper register

Over 19 million property titles are now held electronically, meaning an end to the traditional 'Blue Card' Register. To mark the event, Land Registry Chief Executive Peter Collis symbolically tore up the last Blue Card and entered the details onto the Land Registry's database - the largest online transactional database in the world.

With 24 offices in England and Wales, the Land Registry underpins the economy by guaranteeing ownership of many billions of pounds worth of property. Around £1 million worth of property is processed every minute in England and Wales.
