Land Registry and the Red Tape Challenge
The Red Tape Challenge (RTC) aims to reduce the overall burden of regulation by reducing the stock of regulations that are already in place.
The government is seeking public input through the Red Tape Challenge website on 25 sets of Land Registry regulations from 31 May until 21 June.
The regulations are a sub-theme of the Ministry of Justice's Legal Services Red Tape Challenge which offers an opportunity for business, voluntary community and social sector enterprises and members of the public to submit comments on whether these regulations are working or not.
Good land registration supports economic growth by promoting an active land and property market. It does this by facilitating the buying, selling and mortgaging of land and property and providing confidence to the market through the provision of a state backed guarantee on registration. It can also provide certainty of legal ownership.
