Private firms are considering whether to bid for the Land Registry.
Contenders for the organisation, previously valued at £1.2bn, include buy-out firm Advent International.
Advent’s portfolio includes a stake in furniture company DFS while it previously backed Poundland.
The Chancellor’s Budget statement last week said that the Government “will shortly consult on options to move operations of the Land Registry to the private sector”.
The move to sell off the Land Registry, which holds titles for most of the land in England and Wales, are likely to be fiercely resisted by both the unions and Law Society, which have warned previously that a sale could undermine public confidence in the data.
