Our practice guides are mainly intended for conveyancers and cover a range of topics on land registration practice and procedures. They are designed to help solicitors and conveyancers to process transactions.

Our Public guides are designed to help people without specialist knowledge to understand the most common aspects of land registration.

We can advise you about procedure but cannot give you legal advice. Please check our advisory policy for more information.
