METHODOLOGY: The data provided by Land Registry relates to all titles purchased within
the last 10 years where the owner is not a private individual, the address
for service is overseas and the price paid was stated to be £2 million or
more. Land Registry - the official record of titles in the UK - has only
been entering the territory of incorporation for overseas companies in the
register since January 1999. Foreign companies registered before then would
not be included in any data, while computerisation of the register was only
completed in 2004.

For registration purposes, ‘overseas company’ means a company which is
incorporated outside the UK and includes companies in The Channel Islands,
The Isle of Man and The Irish Republic. It does not include companies which
are incorporated in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
In order to determine the number of offshore companies that only own
residential property – and are subject to the higher 15 per cent stamp
duty - in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster, Land Registry had to run two
different programmes. First it ran one for all titles in the two boroughs,
and then one for all residential titles, to produce separate figures for
commercial and residential properties.
Once it had those, Land Registry then examined at the residential title list
for both boroughs – using a sample of 10 per cent – in more detail, using
both Google maps and Street View to determine that there properties listed
were residential homes.
