1. Yes, the way to find out how many properties someone or a business owns is to search in the Land Registry against their name. Over 89% of all land and property in England & Wales is registered land. So, the records in the Land Registry provide the best evidence of what property a person owns. If you wish to do an authoritative search and include some of the other 11%, you can search in the local Registry of Deeds. However, these records are not as good as searching involves a bit of effort and expense. As a general rule it is only land which has not been dealt with since 1925 that remains unregistered in the Land Registry. So, if this person or business has been incorporated in the latter half of the 20th century or late, a Land Registry search will include their property.
