Land Registry possible refunds
The Land Registry recently posted on its website that applicants who have registered a grant or acquisition of an easement since 1 April 2004 may have overpaid if it related to three or more titles.
The post states that those submitting applications should have been charged under Article 12 of the Fee Order, which asks for a single fee for the registration of the grant or acquisition of an easement relating to more than three titles, regardless of the number of titles.
However, if applicants were charged under the provisions of Schedule 3, Part 1, Paragraph 1 of the Fee Order, charges may have been levied per title.
Applications for the entry of an agreed or unilateral notice regarding an easement are not affected.
If you think you may have been overcharged, email: [email protected] with details of your application.
