Automation is at the heart of our plans to develop efficient and resilient land registry services. By 30 November 2022, all applications coming to HM Land Registry, other than first registrations, can be lodged digitally. HM Land Registry will be ‘digital by default’.
Eddie Davies, Deputy Director – Digital Services (Head of Product)
Six months ago, we told customers we had a year to switch to digital applications. Now at the midway point, we reflect on how far we’ve come in building out our digital application platforms and how customers are responding to the challenge of switching to digital.
From November this year, ALL portal AP1 applications are to be submitted using the Digital Registration Service.
Deputy Director for Digital Services Eddie Davies explains how digital applications will make registering land and property quicker and easier by making error checking and processing times faster.
The pace of digital change is accelerating. At HM Land Registry we are investing in more digital, intuitive services that help our customers to complete and submit applications that are right the first time.
The HM Land Registry portal has played a crucial role in ensuring we continue to process as many applications as possible during the coronavirus pandemic. We’ve been working on a few enhancements to this vital service to make it even simpler to use.
