Land Registry changes to warning of cancellation letters

11th January 2016

From 11 January 2016, the Land Registry will stop sending warning of cancellation letters by post to professional customers when they have not fully replied to a requisition within 15 days.

From that date the Land Registry will send these letters by email only and they will no longer specify which requisition points remain outstanding.

This change will not affect applications from citizen customers only professional customers.

What professional customers need to do.

To continue receiving these reminders, you must:


  • include your email address in the appropriate panel of our application forms (A note has been added to all the relevant forms to help – please use January editions of these Land Registry forms on or after 11 January 2016)
  • make sure your pre-completed template application forms include an email address in the appropriate panel

All Land Registry correspondence will be delivered by email whenever possible if an email address is included on the application form.

Removing paper from this process is part of the Land Registry’s work to digitise their systems and processes. This creates online audit trails for Land Registry customers enabling them to work more efficiently.

Our sister product FormEvo provides property lawyers with access to the Land Registry legal forms as well as auto populating the conveyancer's email address making adhering to the Land Registry’s new process simple and hassle free.
