  • You will need to apply to the Land Registry. The Land Registry shares this information to all property sites, but you can have your sold price removed if you wish.

  • The house paid data supplied by Land Registry is one set of data used by Zoopla We are legally required to note such data on the land register in certain circumstances and to release the data under the terms of Open Government Licence I am afraid we cannot remove the sold price (price paid) entry or data on request as HomeWhereTheHeartIs suggests More information on this and other aspects of our price paid data can be viewed at

  • Question to Land Registry: If you say we can't have the last sold price removed from this website, how come many properties haven't got their last sold price displayed ?

  • Susana - as mentioned above Zoopla draw data from various sources so if the price paid is not shown on their site then it is a quesiton for them rather than us. From our perspective there can be various reasons why a sale may not appear in the data we release but if the sale was post April 2000, for full value and a residential property then the price paid info should appear. If you check the details on our website and it is not mentioned then you can report it as an error and we can investigate and amend our data as appropriate. Mistakes can happen although fortunately not veyr often.

  • Question for Land Registry please. You say, "We are legally required to note such data on the land register in certain circumstances ..." So when might a residential property NOT be listed please?

By this we mean any transaction that involves a transfer to a corporate body, company or business sales that have not been lodged with Land Registry. sales that were not for full market value. By this we mean, the sale of part of a property, a share of a property or the sale of a property at a discount. Examples include a repossession sale or a transfer between parties on divorce transfers, conveyances, assignments or leases at a premium with nominal rent which are: ‘Right to buy’ sales at a discount subject to a lease subject to an existing mortgage buy to let (where they can be identified by a mortgage deed) to effect the sale of a share in a property by way of a gift under a compulsory purchase order under a court order to Trustees appointed under Deed of appointment where no beneficial interest passes Vesting Deeds Transmissions or Assents of more than one property of a Retirement property Leases for seven years or less You may also be interested in

  • Thanks, all makes sense. However, I don't think that companies, for example, should be able to hide how much they paid someone to buy their property. Should be on public lookup.

  • We have started a petition to the Land Registry to get the law changed and offer an "opt out" to anyone that does not want the house purchase price made public. I the same way that you can opt out of your electorial data being released to third parties. Please sign and share the petition to get this changed.

  • Hi My house was bought as right to buy off council and therefore I received discount but price shown on zoopla is price I paid after discount not value. From what land registry wrote then mine would be excluded from having to be marked on zoopla so how do I get it removed from listing?

  • For Land registry- it may be a legal requirement to register sold price on your database, but who gave you the permission to sell that data to third parties. It is someone's property and they may not wish to share purchase price openly...

  • The only way I have found out to by pass the sold price being publicised I have told my estate agency to remove my property from the internet.
