Land Registry Update Practice Guide 19
HM Land Registry (HMLR) have updated the Practice Guide 19, after amending section 3.1.5 – Notices, restrictions and protection of third party interests (PG19) clarifying the use of a ‘wet signature’.
The update specifies that a ‘wet ink’ signature is always necessary for a certificate required for a Form LL restriction
The previous version of PG19 was not completely clear on the approach where a certificate to satisfy a Form LL restriction had been lodged by post.
PG19 has also been updated:
- To clarify that conveyancers may charge a fee to provide a certificate to comply with a restriction in Form LL.
- To set out how a certificate or consent required by a restriction should be lodged.
