The Land Registry have issued a notice advising firms to check their “address for service” in order to prevent fraud.
The address for service is the address to which they send notices and correspondence.
They say that keeping your address up to date and accurate is an important step in helping to prevent property fraud.
In order to ensure swift and correct delivery the Land Registry is, whenever possible, now entering in the register an address for service in a format that conforms with official sources like Royal Mail.
In some instances this might be slightly different to the format of the address provided by the applicant or their conveyancer in a deed or application form.
