A portal to time saved

Like all organisations, HM Land Registry has had to respond to service disruption since the national lockdown began on 23 March. As the UK continues to weather the present circumstances, it is clear our digital services are increasingly of critical importance while more people are working remotely.

We have been working hard to keep providing our services, and are now delivering our services that are essential to enable property transactions within normal service levels. In our efforts to maintain service standards in these unique circumstances, the HM Land Registry portal, where 74% of our applications are made, has played a crucial role in ensuring we continue to process as many applications as possible. We’ve been working on a few enhancements to this vital service to make it even simpler to use, changes that now seem even more important in the current circumstances.

Viewing and submitting applications

In the near future customers will be easily able to find and view the latest updates on applications submitted through the portal along with the latest correspondence – including notices, requisitions and letters – all in one place. The accessible, user friendly interface will make it quicker to find the information they need, including an estimated completion date which will help with forward planning, and, alongside our other enhancements, reduce the time customers would previously have spent contacting us for status updates.

View My Applications enables direct access to all applications where customers can search, view and filter directly from one screen.

Later this year we’ll be opening up our Digital Registration Service to all HM Land Registry portal users; this is currently being piloted with a limited number of customers. This will simplify the way customers submit applications to us, starting with our most common form – the AP1. Under the Digital Registration Service any potential errors on the AP1 will be identified and highlighted prior to application submission, preventing the need for us to send out requests for further information (known as requisitions) and saving our customers time and money.

A variety of features, including fee calculations, prompts to attach missing documents and highlighting discrepancies between names entered on the application and those in the register, will all minimise the more common issues we find in applications. Additionally, a new capability to pre-populate some aspects of the form based on existing information will save valuable time in submitting and processing applications. Customers will also be able to submit up to 10 transactions under the same title within a single application, as well as being able to save progress in an application and return to complete it later. These enhancements will all save repeated entry of the same information.

View My Applications and the launch of the Digital Registration Service will transform how customers access, submit and progress applications. The enhanced Digital Registration Service helps us get information from customers in a clearer format which helps us to deliver a speedier service for customers.

Since our Business Strategy was published in 2017, HM Land Registry has embarked on an innovative and ambitious digital transformation programme. We are continuing to review our services, taking into account the uncertain and rapidly changing landscape and listening to our customers. By working in close partnership with our customers we will continue to explore how we can use our Business e-services to make it even simpler, faster, and cheaper than ever for our customers to access, process and submit applications.

    Great news

    I've been monitoring the LR blogsite during lockdown and it seems that more and more Citizens are going direct to LR rather than their conveyancers. Cant see the trend reversing. Sooner or later conveyancers are going to get into trouble for not being as up-to-speed on applications as they could be

    When will conveyancers be able to nominate their clients for direct access to Application Enquiry ? And required to state their policy on this on websites to help informed decisions on selecting conveyancers. Like price information

    Thanks to all for keeping things running.

    When will Adam get some leave? He seems to be more or less left on his own but is still setting standards for reassuring laypeople which conveyancers find difficult to match.

    Good luck

    John

      John - apologies for slow reply but wanted to check with colleagues as to whether we have any plans to make more information available online to non business e-service users to enable citizens to track applications for example. The answer is No at present but we do appreciate the feedback so the e-door is never closed on such ideas.
      As far as my time management and leave are concerned that should work out ok as there’s a large team of very supportive colleagues behind our online responses. And that sunshine is very inviting

  2. Comment by Catherine Evans posted on

    I am left despondent that there is no mention of the existing backlog of cases, and the current unacceptable time to deal with applications. Even if there is not that much you can do at present some acknowledgement would be welcome. Promising that things will be marvellous in the "near future" does not cut it with hard pressed conveyancers, and worried clients.

    I have a deed of variation that was submitted through on Thursday last week From freetricity and receipt was confirmed along with the expedite from LR. There has been a significant delay in getting this signed with the solar panel company due to the current pandemic and I have had to move to temporary accommodation as the buyer of my property was threatening to pull out so I proceeded with the sale of mine. Can you please advise as to how long it is likely to take to register the deed of variation for solar panels as I would like to have some idea as to how long the purchase of our new house is likely to take ? This is the only thing we are now waiting on. Any help and advise you can give would be very welcome.

      Becky - if it’s been expedited then it’s normally considered within 5 working days. Everything then hangs on it being in order of course

    Hello,
    I submitted a TR-1 form with confirmation of delivery on 22nd May 2020. I have not received a confirmation of receipt nor have any way of checking the progress of my application as we did not use a conveyancer. What can I do to obtain an update?

  5. Comment by HarryL posted on

    Thanks to all at the Land Registry for all your hard work - I have a question on timescales, having read the link at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-impact-on-hm-land-registrys-services#impact-on-our-services that says there is a significant delay on "register to update applications".
    Last year a group of us collectively enfranchised our leasehold property in mid-January 2020, and all submitted our updated leases to register the new details on our leasehold titles (999 years, peppercorn ground rent etc). 6 months later, this still has not yet happened, owing to the coronavirus backlog (understandably) but our conveyancer will not enquire as to progress or consider expediting unless we pay him £250. As direct users are unable to enquire directly, is there any chance of understanding current typical timescales for such matters, or displaying them online somewhere. I would like to avoid paying a large sum for expediting now (after 6 months of waiting) if it is just about to happen anyway. Thank you in advance.

      Comment by AdamH posted on

      HarryL - thank you for your kind words.
      We do display average timescales online via our service standards on GOV.UK https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/hm-land-registry-service-standards/our-service-standards
      However these only cover pre Covid 19 averages and as you will appreciate an average is only that so indicative only. It will however give you some understanding as to why a new lease would on average take several months to register.
      The reality is that a new lease or any other register update/create is protected from the day it is submitted. You may then have to wait until it is registered but you are still protected. We would not expedite it simply because it was several months old but if there was an urgency such as a confirmed sale and purchase or expiring mortgage offer then we could consider it.
      So if you and your fellow enfranchisers have no such urgency then it is very much a case of holding on and waiting until the new leases are registered. Hopefully you can all bear with us a bit longer

        Hi Adam - thank you for such a swift reply. I did see the service standards, but even pre-COVID it says for a register update it's a 5 day target (para 1.3) and a 13 day performance (para 2), but as we are now at approx 120 working days, any idea as to current average would really help. I ask as I am in process of selling the flat, and although the purchaser is not yet confirmed, I would hate for the process to be held up. I guess that without the HMLR reference (which only my former conveyancer holds) I cannot even ask myself for an expedition?

        • Replies to HarryL>

          Comment by AdamH posted on

          Harry L - I took your comment to indicate that you’ve extended your leases. If so then by doing so you have surrendered the original lease and created a new one based but for a longer term. That’s a new lease
          We won’t expedite it until the buyer is confirmed so continue to market it and if and when you reach the memorandum of sale stage your conveyancer/you can use that to support any request.

    Adam - of course, you're absolutely right - that makes more sense. Thank you for your advice, and i shall sit tight until I need to. All the best. Harry

    Hi Adam. I hope you are well? Sorry to ask again, but is there any update on 9 Cragg Lane, Denholme, BD13 4HP? I've lost where I put my original post. I'm hoping you should have received the postal registration by now. Thanks

  8. Comment by M posted on

    Thanks again Adam. We've had notification that the expedited. I know that it's so difficult to confirm this, but from recent applications that have been expedited, is it still quite a wait? We are in a big chain, and our purchase is holding it all up. So feeling a bit responsible/anxious/worried. Thanks

    • Replies to M>

      Comment by AdamH posted on

      M - understood. It was expedited today so I’d expect it to be considered ASAP. That could be within 48hrs but first registrations, which this is, are the type of application affected by Covid 19 as they rely on paper deeds/access to offices for example.
      It’s impossible to be definitive therefore re timescales but it shouldn’t be ‘quite a wait’ to use your own words.
      What really matters is whether the application is complete/sufficient. If it is then registration often happens at same time as consideration. So at this stage I’d suggest stay positive, try not to stress too much over the weekend and let’s see where things are on Tues/Wed for example.
      Not ideal I know but it’s the very best we can do in the circumstances and I hope that helps and reassures in equal measure

        That's brilliant and really does help. I will do as you say and try and not stress about it over the weekend. Fingers crossed that the application is sufficient enough at this stage.

        You've been amazing Adam, thanks so much for all your help so far. It really has been so reassuring and helpful to have someone reply so quickly and with such up to date information. Thank you so much. Great work!

      M - I’m afraid not. The limited details I can access suggest some further communication with the conveyancer is required. As such I doubt if it’s going to be completed for a while yet but you will have to bear with us and the conveyancer but hopefully they should hear soon.

      Pauline - it is real but a Blog is not the best channel for specific enquiries. However we appreciate at this Covid time some customers may use it.
      The application is still with us and being processed. Part of that process involves wider checks and these may not complete until 24th/25th August depending on replies.

    Hi Adam, my brother is buying a leasehold flat but it has been put as basement on the HMLR but as ground floor on the EPC. Does it have to be altered and if so how long do you think it will take to sort.

      Comment by AdamH posted on

      KA - if the register is wrong then that needs to be corrected. How long it takes will depend on how the mistake was made. If simply an error on our part then a few weeks. If the error was in the lease then you need to get the lease corrected and that will take significantly longer

        Thank you for responding so quickly.
        I have received word today that the sellers solicitors have submitted an application to yourselves.
        As far as I am aware, this should be a relatively straight forward fix.
        Do you know roughly how long we are looking at? I am hoping they have also requested for it to be expedited!

      Comment by AdamH posted on

      AC - it’s still with us but hopefully not too far from being finished. Although expedited the nature of the application required us to carry out wider checks and these can take a few months to complete.
      These appear to have been completed at the end of last week so it is now with one of our lawyers for final approval.

    Hi. I'm thinking of purchasing part of my next door neighbour's garden. However, on further investigation the land we wish to buy appears to be straddling two titles.

    To avoid a double set of conveyancing fees, would it be easier to amalgamate the existing titles and then buy the land from the one title?

    Thanks in advance.

There are some issues with the registration submitted by the lawyer for the buyer. I would like to get line of sight on the requisition as it effects the sale of the remaining property.

But we have not heard back from HM land registry as my solicitor keep saying there is a back log of cases. But we are now in November and my solicitor is still insisting that the HMland registry is not responding to anyone .

    I’m so worried about this , I don’t know whether my details have updated with land registry and my details now appears on the register .

    How do I know this ?
    Kindly help out

    My house sale completed 9th november. When should I expect the updated land registry /title deeds? I have applied for some government funding but need them before I can proceed. Thanks

      Sam - if it was an already registered title then you are looking at a wait t8me of 4/5 weeks from date of receipt by us. If you lodged it yourself then you’ll need to add a few more weeks for wider anti fraud checks to complete as well.

        Hi Adam,

        I contacted the LR a four weeks ago and was informed of a mistake by my solicitors (not sure what the mistake was) they apparently got the amended form back very quickly but I still haven't heard anything... Could you provide a update / timescale as I can't move into the house till this is done due to needing a government grant to get heating in the property but the property needs to be in my name first!

          Sam - I’ve checked with the caseworker and whilst the solicitor did provide more it wasn’t enough to fully conclude matters. They’ll contact the solicitor to explain and hopefully they can solve matters quickly. Please give them and us time to sort this next stage out before chasing a second time. NYK154583

    Hi - just wanted to ask how long a adverse possession, first registration application would take, it has been expediated by Land Registry, and a OS Surveyor has gone out already, OS have completed and sent survey to LG. How long could this application take.
    This is the reference number for the application. Enquiry reference: 201229-000556 Application reference: EA8600C.

    Kind regards.

      MonaM - it would be considered by us ASAP at each stage as it’s been expedited. The key from a timescale perspective tends to be any wider checks needed such as contacting adjoining/affected neighbours. A senior officer will consider if those are required and if anything else is needed from the solicitor
      Your references confirm you have all the up to date information to date so please rely on your solicitor here. There’s nothing we can add on this blog

      Frankie - it was received end of October and processed at start of December. It wasn’t in order and it looks like we have just received some additional information from the applicant.
      It will need to be reconsidered by a caseworker again so that should happen shortly. I’ll flag with colleagues to ensure it is.

    Hi Adam. I messaged on Saturday but my post has disappeared. I’m in the middle of purchasing a property and the solar panels on the roof haven’t been registered. We now have the forms and have expedited them to LR. Could you give me an update on this as we need to complete before 6th February 2021. Address - 8 Roche road, Walsall WS3 2QT. Cheers Dave

      Dave - we have no application currently pending against that address. I assume by ‘expedited them to LR’ you mean they’ve only just been sent by post. If so then they’ve yet to be added to the system

    I am very impressed with the efforts made by LR staff to make the Land Registration process comprehensible and accessible to members of the public. I have a question to which I am unable to find a clear answer : When submitting form AP1, am I correct in understanding that all documents supporting the application - such as TR1 and DS1 - may be certified copies rather than originals ; and that an applicant who has acted in person in his purchase may himself certify those copies as true copies.

    Hi, We are waiting for our property to be transferred in to our names. The solicitor has told us this was submitted last Autumn, but we are yet to have anything come through. We are needing to take a mortgage out on the property to undertake urgent repairs. It's a straight transfer from my inlaws to us, do you know how long this should take to be processed? 11 Church Lane B49 5JS

        Thanks for your help.

    Good Afternoon

    2 weeks ago have applied by mail to the LR to cancel home right of my ex and included my decree absolute. Since then I hear nothing and was just wondering if the request was processed? (EX179452)

    Pleased to hear

  41. Comment by Ergun posted on

    Thank you Adam, do you require anything else, or just decree absolute was enough for cancellation? And if I will get any reconfirmation after cancellation?

      Ergun- decree absolute is sufficient with the form. Whoever applied will be notified once done.

    Hi there, I was just wondering if you have received documentation for the registration of the solar panel lease for No. 2, YO51 9GN? We’re not clear if the paperwork has been submitted yet. Many thanks.

      KarenT - an application was lodged on the 17th but rejected as incorrectly submitted. Hopefully they will correct that and resubmit shortly
