If you or a member of your family have been granted a protection order under the Domestic Violence Act 1995 you can apply to the Registrar-General of Land under s108 of the Act to hide the information held about you on the Land Register which may otherwise disclose your whereabouts.
In practice this means that no-one can then search for your title information without your consent. The hidden title direction lasts for five years unless the protection order is discharged earlier; and it can be revoked at any time if your circumstances change.
Co-owners of the property must consent to your application as their details will also be concealed.
It’s important to note that the hidden title direction does not extend to other public registers such as your local rating authority; you would need to make separate applications for those.
The hidden title procedure is not used very often but it is available if you have personal safety concerns.
