Land Registry improve postal application systems

It has been announced this week that the Land Registry have introduced two new ways for conveyancing firms to submit land registration applications, as well as maintain regular correspondence.

This change has come about following the addition of front end scanning at the Registry. This led to inconsistency in postal application delivery, as all post needed to be redirected to the scanning centre – thus an alternative means of correspondence for conveyancers was required.

When land registration applications are sent through the new PO Box and DX addresses, all deliveries will arrive directly at the scanning centre, cutting application times significantly.

The Land Registry has assured the creation of the new systems will ensure applications will arrive as efficiently as possible, for those that do not require to be electronically recorded.

In order to save on business costs and improve conveyancing department process speed, applications may also be sent electronically, which the Registry states will include a 50% reduction in fees.

It has been advised that all law and conveyancing firms that will be sending applications through the PO Box and DX postal systems should update records with the new addresses. This will ensure there is minimised impact on your business.
