Getting the most from Application Enquiry part 2

This is the final part of our two part blog that will help our customers get the most from Application Enquiry, our online tool that supports the way they already monitor and manage registration applications.

Yesterday we offered two tips to land and property professionals who use our portal:

  • Tip 1: Search by ‘HM Land Registry Reference’ to save time and see specific information; and
  • Tip 2: Save application details for later.

 Today we pick up where we left off and continue with three more tips:

Tip 3: Check and verify discharge activity

If you have a title number of a property, you can view a list of the pending applications and official searches with priority against it.

If a pending application relates solely to a discharge of charge it will be easy to identify because the service flags this on the screen.

Alternatively, you can select ‘Discharge Activity’ to find out whether any charges have been discharged against this title number within the previous 30 calendar days.

This is gives you an easy way to check if we have received a discharge before you send us your own application.

If any discharged charges are revealed you can then select the ‘Verify Details’ link to input the charge date and confirm details relating to the discharged charge(s). You can then print the page - select ‘Printer-Friendly Version’.

Tip 4: The limitations of requesting more information about the progress of an application

If you need information about the progress of an application you should be able to find what you need from the ‘application details’ screen. If this doesn’t contain the information you need, you can request more information with the ‘Still need to contact us?’ link within the service, although the information in Application Enquiry is often the best information we have.

If you make a request for more information, we will respond by email within 24 hours. It is rarely possible to predict an application’s completion time with any certainty and in most cases we can only give an indication of when your application will be completed (which will often mirror the average timescale already shown as part of the service).

It’s also important to note that in most cases, we can only provide more information to the person who submitted the application.

Tip 5: You can ask us to expedite an application if it’s urgent

When your application is urgent (maybe it’s holding up a transaction?), you can ask us to expedite it under certain circumstances. If we approve your request, we will process your application sooner. If you have sent us everything we need, we should be able to complete it quickly.

Please note that we will usually only consider such requests from the organisation that sent us the application.

To make a request to expedite an application, click on the ‘Still need to contact us?’ button within Application Enquiry, then complete your contact details and select the ‘Request an expedite’ option.

Select the expedition reason from the drop down menu and don’t forget to send us the supporting evidence. We will need this to validate your request. When we have assessed your request, we will email you our decision.

Final tip

Don't forget that Our guide explains how Business e-services customers can check applications to HM Land Registry through the portal.

We want to hear from you

    Hi,

    It's been over 5 months since my Mortgage offer was accepted.
    The Property is shared Ownership Leasehold.
    My solicitor raised enquiries beginning of July.
    They were chasing via email the Sellers Solicitor and they need to answer 2 and update the Building Insurance,which has been expired.
    I will list the Enquiries:

    3.Please Clarify the Extent of the Property.The Title Plan indicates that only The First Floor of the Building is included in the Demise with the Remainder being the Parking Space to the front.The Description of the Property in the lease describes it has a ground floor Flat and the Estate Agents Particulars describe it as a Duplex Apartment over two Floors.

    5.Please Confirm why the Freehold for each Flat has been separately Registered

    Update the Building Insurance

    I keep calling the EA and my Solicitor every single day to find out if they have any further updates for me. The EA tells me it is with the Land registry since September and I am not sure if they have submitted the application.
    Please,Could somebody confirm if the application was submitted and can confirm it's been expedited,because my Mortgage offer runs out soon.
    The address is 9 Kirkstall Place, Oldbrook,Milton Keynes,MK6 2RD
    Many Thanks
    Niros

    Thanks

            Ianflowers,When you wrote "A response on the other points raised will be sent as soon as possible",do you mean the Question 3 and 5.Will you post or email it directly to the Sellers Solicitor.Will it be this week?Does this mean they need to fill this response and sent it back to you?

            Niros - I only meant that we will respond to you by email on the points raised that do not relate to whether an application is pending. We would hope to respond this week but cannot guarantee this. We wouldn't be able to post to the seller's solicitors as they would need to contact us directly if they've not already done so. We also can't take any action in respect of the transaction re the shared ownership lease in advance of an application being made.

            Hi Ianflowers,
            A couple of weeks ago,I have asked if the Sellers Solicitor made any application and you confirmed no application has been made.Today,I have spoken to my Estate Agents and they said to me over the phone that the Sellers Solicitor has sent the documents to Land registry.I need to find out if they've done it,because this is from August and I don't really know what to do now.
            Please,Could you possibly have a look for Property 9 Kirkstall Place,Milton Keynes,MK6 2RD

    Hi I'm in the process of selling a flat and are near to completion. The buyers solicitor has been in touch with my solicitor asking for lease to be upgraded to an absolute title from a good leasehold title. My solicitor tells me they have applied for this and expidited the application she also tells me that it should just be a formality. My concern is she has done what she said she has as i think sometimes she just tells me what I want to hear . So looking for an update ..the address is

    Hi,
    Our solicitor started a application on Friday 1st and expedite the application.
    We receive a letter on Friday 8th stating we need a ordnance surveyor survey to up date your files in order to complete the application which can take up to 2 weeks.
    We are in urgent need of this sorting other wise the sale is going to fall through.
    Are you able to advise if it will be quicker than this and how long does it take once the surveyor has been out for the application being complete and notified to my solicitor ?

      Sarah. Hi. Our surveys requests are passed to Ordnance Survey to deal with and they should be in touch with you to arrange a suitable time to visit. If an expedite has been granted, the urgency should have been noted on the survey request, but please contact your solicitor who can check the position with us or contact us directly us using our online form or by phone with details and we'll look into it.

      Hi. We've already responded to your general points re the survey. As to how long it will take once the survey has been completed, this will very much depend result of the survey, the application type and whether any additional issues / points arise. Your solicitor is best placed to check the position with us.

        Hi Ian,
        Thanks for the reply.
        I believe we are applying for the land to be registered as no one has ever owned it and it’s a small section of our front garden.
        Will our solicitor be able to check the progress of what stage we are at ?
        We are hoping it’s as straight forward as registering the land to us.
        What is the time scale or the surveyor reporting back to Land Registry?
        We believe it’s been treated as a urgent matter but nothing moves very quickly and it’s very stressful.
        Thank you

          Hi, you're welcome. I should mention that where an application is made for first registration based on possession of the land rather than title deeds, there is a lot to consider. One of the main aspects is that without title deeds, we cannot ignore the possibility that a third party may be holding 'title' to the land. These are amongst the most complex types of application that we receive requiring the consideration of senior staff and depending on the result of the survey, notices may need to be served which delay the process further.

          While the due process described above cannot be circumvented, the expedition will ensure that the application proceeds to each stage as quickly as possible. It should also be noted that if the application proceeds to notice then time will need to be allow for the recipients of the notice to respond. Also, if notice is served, the recipients may object or give a counter notice which will inevitably also result in a further delay. It appears unlikely that this will happen in this case, but I think it is best for you to be aware of the possibility.

          Your solicitor can check progress through electronic business channels and also to contact us if needed to chase progress.

          I hope this information is helpful in clarifying the position and please be assured that we are progressing the application as quickly as our procedures and governing legislations allows.

    Hi, I’m currently in the process of taking my name (Simon Graham Taylor) off the title of the property 17 Pickering Road, Liverpool, L36 4AJ.

    Could I ask the have this application expedited as I am unable to complete the completion of my new property as I am using a help to buy. - the process so far has taken nearly 3 months and I was supposed to complete on the 14th Dec 2018 - my property developers are close to pulling my purchase.

      Hi. We received this application on 4 February. On 7 February, we wrote to the solicitors acting setting out the points that needed to be addressed for the application to be in order. To date, we have not received a reply. There will be little benefit in expedition as once the solicitors have complied with the outstanding points, we will be in position to complete the application.

      If you need to check progress, the solicitor acting will be best placed to confirm that latest position.

          Simon - We have received a response from the solicitors acting, but two of the points raised remain outstanding. We will contact the solicitors today to remind them of this. The outstanding points are reasonably straightforward, so we don't anticipate a lengthy delay, but we are obviously dependent on the solicitors in this respect.

      Hi. We have arranged for Ordnance Survey to inspect the land which is standard procedure in these types of cases. We sent a letter to you on 8 February informing you of this.

      We have also written to the solicitors acting to request that they pay the balance of fees outstanding which includes the inspection fee.

      Once the solicitors have complied with the request and the results of the inspection have been received, the case can be considered further.

          Sarah, I understand the urgency but I should mention that this type of application where title is not based on deeds is one of the most complex applications we process involving a number of procedural stages and the consideration senior staff. The applications expedited status provides a marker within our system that the application should be hastened at all stages.

          As you know, these applications involve an onsite inspection of the land and this takes up to 2 weeks. The case, including the results of the survey, will need to be considered by senior staff as mentioned. We will normally need to give notice of the application to any person who, from the information available or from our local knowledge, may have an interest in the land. We then have to wait for the time period (around 3 weeks) relating to the notices we have served to expire.

          It should also be noted that if the application proceeds to notice then the recipients of the notice may of course object or give a counter notice which will inevitably delay the process further. Any such objection may be unlikely in this case, but I think it best to make you aware of the possibility. We may also need to raise further queries with the solicitors lodging the application and wait for their replies.

          We wrote to the solicitors acting for their consent to debit a further £30 from their account to cover the inspection fee. We have not heard back from them yet.

          The due process described above cannot be circumvented, but as mentioned this will be progressed as quickly as possible. Your solicitor is best placed to advise you on the progress of the application.

    Hello,

    Since our offer was accepted on 25th November for 7 Carr Bank, Boarsgreave Lane, Rossendale BB4 7EF we have come across a few hurdles. I now believe that one of those hurdles is being dealt with through yourselves. Our solicitor found that a section of the front garden is not registered to the current owners. The current owners have had continued use of the land since they purchased in 1998, the land being enclosed within a stone wall around the property, they weren't actually aware they didn't hold title over the land.
    I understand the current owners are coming into your offices to sign a declaration, I also believe the solicitors have filed to expedite this case.
    I suppose my message is a plea really, after selling our property on 1st February we are currently living with our family in a 2 bedroom bungalow with an 11 month old baby and two dogs! (not ideal). Registering this land to the current owners is the only thing holding up our completion now.

    I understand their solicitors have taken their time in applying for possessory over the land, as we raised the issue back in December (they just seemed to try to get around the issue), and this isn't your problem, but could I ask that someone please treat this case with absolute urgency? We are getting pretty desperate now.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jenna Lewis

      Jenna - I'm afraid I cannot find a record of such an application having as yet been submitted. The sellers would not come into our offices to sign a declaration but would do this through their solicitor.
      In the circumstances I would suggest contacting the solicitor to ask them for the provisional title number and case reference we have allocated on receipt. They should have received an acknowledgement of this if it has been submitted as suggested. I can double check again if you can obtain that for me please

    Good Afternoon,

    I was wondering if you could help/assist at all.
    My deed of variation has been submitted today- along with the request to be expedited with supporting evidence. My property is 53 Goodrich Mews, DY3 2FB.

    We are under enormous pressure to have this completed ASAP. The property is in an urgent chain, where the final moving date of the 26th April (as three other dates have been and gone due to waiting for this deed to be completed)

    Is there any chance you could push for the decision of the expedite to be made quickly? And more onwards push for it to be completed?

    We need the deed completed by 19th April at the latest- in order to leave enough time for the contract completion to be done for our finial moving deadline of 26th April 2019

    Kind Regards

If there is a mix up and the registered titles need to be corrected/amended then we would need applications against both and the timescales may then be longer. You should check with the solicitor(s) involved to clarify exactly what is happening, how and possible timescales from their perspective

            Hi does that mean the garden land is now transferred on to my property?

            Sharon - the land has been registered under a new title. It would not be added to your existing title unless it could be and it had been applied for. In this case as your property is mortgaged we would have refused such a request.

    Hi

    I have a lease extension for 29 St Marys House, PO36AB that was submitted at the start of February, we have been allocated Title Number PM34904, can you give me a rough timescale you would expect this to be completed at the moment?

    I have accepted an offer and the buyer cannot progress until the registration is complete so will request to expedite (I wasn't aware this was an option till today), is 7-10 days to complete if this is accepted?

      James - the application was submitted on 11 Feb and the current backlog means that it is likely to be several weeks yet before it is considered. If it is expedited then we would normally consider it within 10 working days. Everything then depends on it being in order

        Hi Adam

        Thanks for the prompt response.

        I believe the request to expedite was put in on Friday. Can you confirm that this has been received?

        Thanks

        Hi Adam, thanks for your prompt reply,

        If application is considered for expedition, does it mean that there are no issues and land will definitely be registered?
        if application is considered for expedition , how long will take for the part of land to get registered?
        thanks for your help

          Raazia - expedition simply shortens the time between receipt and consideration, so just the wait time. It's only when it is considered that decisions are made as to whether it can be completed/registered.

    Hi,

    What is the average time for an expedited land registry application to be completed?

      Beth - expedition means that it should be considered within 10 working days of that approval. If it is in order and no wider checks are required then it will be completed at the same time.

      Anoshanth - they asked us to expedite it on the 4th June and we have agreed to do so. They will have been advised that expedition means we will consider it within 10 working days. If it is in order then once considered it should be completed but your solicitor can keep you informed as to it's progress

    Hi,
    Would it be possible to check the progress of our garage lease, attached to 5 Bells House, Giddylake, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 2QU? This is now holding up a chain and we are all keen to move. We were told by our solicitor that it has been requested to be expedited. I think this was sent on the 14th May. Please could you confirm if the application to expedite has been agreed, and a possible timescale for the registration to be completed.
    Kind regards,
    Richard

      Richard - the application was received on the 14th May. There's no record of a request to expedite with the application so I'd suggest following that up with the solicitor to confirm/submit such a request along with documentary evidence of the onward sale. There is a process for doing that which links to the live application

        Hi Adam,
        We went back to our solicitor as you suggested. They say an expedite was requested.
        After further follow up from the solicitor, we have been advised... "the registration should be in by the 17/06 that’s when the requisition ( land registry enquiries) are due to cancel and they have dealt with what was needed to be done so anticipated to be back by Monday."

        As it is now Wednesday, and we still haven't received any news regarding our application, we were wondering if you could find any information your side to support this?

        Many thanks
        Richard

          Richard - the information I can see shows an application to register a new lease for the garage as being received on 16th May. There has been no request to expedite it. The correspondence between us and them, which expired on 17th June, refers to a request by us for them to submit a certified copy of the lease. That was raised as a preliminary requisition on receipt. It did not relate to full consideration/registration I'm afraid which is likely to be several weeks away unless they ask it to be expedited and provide documentary evidence to confirm the urgency. Sorry but it seems they may have misinterpreted the correspondence from us to them on 16th May

            Thank you again Adam, your information regarding our application has been EXTREMELY helpful & enabled our solicitors to follow up accordingly.
            Hopefully, we are on the right track now, we have just received the following update from them:
            "...We have chased the land registry accordingly and expressed our urgency for this matter to be expedited as soon as possible..."
            Assuming you have everything you need now(?), is it too premature to go back to our original question & seek advice for a possible timescale?
            Many thanks

            Richard - if expedition is approved then we would advise the solicitor that we will aim to consider their application within 10 working days. Everything then hinges on it being in order

    Good morning,

    Would it be possible to check the progress the registration of the land for The Mews, Sheinton, SY5 6DN. We were told by our solicitor that the application was submitted on 12/06/2019 and due to the sale which will follow a request would be made for the application to be expedited.

    Without the application being dealt with urgency the chain is being held up as contacts cannot be exchanged until the land has been registered. All parties are keen to complete and move.

    Please could you confirm if the application to expedite has been agreed, and a possible timescale for the registration to be completed.

    Kind regards,
    N Baldwin

      Natalie - I can confirm that the application (SL260423) was added to the system on 13th June. I cannot see any record of a request to consider expediting it. The lodging solicitor would be the one to submit such a request and evidence of the linked sale/purchase. I'd suggest checking with them as to whether such a request has been made and if so how.
      A request to expedite, if approved, means that it should be considered within 10 working days of being expedited
