There's 2 parts to this.

The query itself which is a MYSQL task
assuming id is the primary key. A mysql join something like the following should get you started.

SELECT *, L.fileno, L.type of ownership, L.firstname, L.last,, P.doe, P.plotno, P.location from Land owners as L join Property as P on =

and if your columns and table names really have spaces in them you're going to need to use some form of quotes or back ticks.

Then you have to figure out how to use PHP mysql, and nowadays people are generally recommended to use mysqli or mysqlPDO, but you can still use the mysql interface.
You connect to the database.
You make a variable that is the query.
You pass the query variable to mysql.
You iterate through the result set and print it out, or whatever it is you want to do with it.

hope that gets you started.
