Withdraw searches online
For business customers, the Land Registry’s online transaction channel – the portal – can now be used to withdraw official lodged searches.
Rather than writing in to formally withdraw a search, the new option available from today (9th January 2016) will provide customers with a simpler and easier alternative.
Customers may wish to withdraw a search when a house sale falls through or when they wish to correct information that they have sent to Land Registry.
The new feature has been tested with customers in order to make sure their needs are adequately met.
A detailed portal guide can be found here, which provides information on how an official search can be withdrawn online.
