Transparency of Land Ownership involving Trusts

Closed 21 Feb 2024

Opened 27 Dec 2023


The Government is consulting on the transparency of land ownership when trusts are involved in the ownership structure.

This consultation seeks views on improving transparency of land ownership involving trusts. It seeks specific views on options to widen access to trust information held on the Register of Overseas Entities (ROE). It also seeks general views on how ownership of land involving trusts can be made more transparent. To help inform decisions on balancing the making of information available and any legitimate concerns in sharing that information publicly, the consultation seeks views on what data would be most useful and why.

This consultation is published by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), on behalf of and jointly with His Majesty’s Treasury (HMT), His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the Department for Business and Trade (DBT).
