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.
We've changed the name of our View My Applications service to View Applications as customers can now search for their colleagues' applications as well as their own.
We are excited to launch a new dedicated practice guide to signing deeds and documents electronically. We hope it will give clarity where required and encourage users who are new to electronic signatures.
From November this year, ALL portal AP1 applications are to be submitted using the Digital Registration Service.
Our latest move away from paper-based processes means that from November 2022 we will no longer accept scanned or PDF copies of AP1s for changes to existing titles via the HM Land Registry portal.
Making our digital channels easier to use and enabling the transfer of digital data across organisational boundaries will reduce requisitions, progress calls and speed up completion of cases.
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.
Head of IT Operations Practice Rachel Jones discusses how HM Land Registry has become one of the first organisations to adopt containerisation technology.
HM Land Registry is exploring the next steps in introducing greater levels of automation.
Electronic signatures have a major role to play in the future of land registration. We're working to ensure everyone can trust the security and usability of their signature, regardless of which platform they wish to use for signing.
