How can I protect my property from fraud?
Your property is probably the most valuable asset you own. That's why it's important you do whatever you can to protect it from the risk of fraud. You can help to protect your property from fraud by:
- keeping your contact details up to date
- registering your property if it is unregistered
- verifying the identity of your tenants if you are a landlord
- putting a restriction in your register.

Additional security for owners not living at the registered property (Form RQ)
For owners who do not live at the registered property, we have introduced an additional security measure.
Under this measure you or your conveyancer can make a request using our form RQ asking the registrar to enter a restriction, free of charge.
