Land Registry update: new paper applications procedures
On 1st October the Land Registration (Proper Office) Order 2013 came into place changing the process for paper applications.
You will now be able to send your paper applications to an office based on your location, rather than that of the property concerned.
This should simplify the process as you can send all applications to the same office as well as speeding up processing as work will be more evenly distributed between offices.
How will this affect me?
– If you have a Land Registry customer team, please send applications to your customer team.
– If you are a business customer without a Land Registry customer team, they recommend you send your paper applications to a particular Land Registry office. The relevant office depends on the location of your business.
– If you are a member of the public acting without a conveyancer, they recommend you send your paper applications to a particular Land Registry office.
The relevant office depends on the location of your home.
