There has been an update published in the following practice guide:
First registrations (PG1)
Guidance for conveyancers on how to register unregistered estates in land for the first time (practice guide 1).
Page Summary : This guide deals with the procedure to be followed when applying for first registration of unregistered estates in land. It does not deal with the effects of registration or the characteristics of the various classes of title with which land may be registered.
Change made : Sections 4.4.4 and 4.6 have been amended to mention that from 14 June 2021 HM Land Registry will scan some first registration applications to enable electronic processing of these applications. Where applications are scanned the deeds and documents lodged with an application will be returned after scanning to the customer.
