16 September 2020

HM Land Registry (HMLR) have updated the Practice Guide 19

HM Land Registry (HMLR) have updated the Practice Guide 19, after amending section 3.1.5 – Notices, restrictions and protection of third party interests (PG19) clarifying the use of a ‘wet signature’.

The update specifies that a ‘wet ink’ signature is always necessary for a certificate required for a Form LL restriction

The previous version of PG19 was not completely clear on the approach where a certificate to satisfy a Form LL restriction had been lodged by post. PG19 has also been updated to clarify that conveyancers may charge a fee to provide a certificate to comply with a restriction in Form LL.

To set out how a certificate or consent required by a restriction should be lodged.
