As the personal representative or executor, how should I register myself as 'registered owner'?
If the deceased was a sole owner, or the last surviving joint owner of registered land or property, you and any other personal representatives may register yourselves as owners of the land or property.
For example, if the beneficiary is under age, (under 18) you can be registered as owner(s), but as personal representatives of the deceased,
by sending us:
a completed application form AP1
the original or official copy of the grant of probate/letters of administration (we will return this to you),
the appropriate fee.
Once registered, you can later assent or transfer the land or property.
Under our advisory policy we can give you factual information and procedural advice about how the land registration system works and how to make an application, but we cannot provide legal advice. In view of the complexities of the law in relation to this matter you may wish to seek legal advice.
