What do I do if I receive a notice from Land Registry?
One of the precautions that we take to prevent wrongful registration is to send a notice to inform the recipient that we have received an application, or that there is a proposal to alter the register which may adversely affect their interest.
Some notices set a time limit for you to reply and ask for your consent to the application. Other notices are for information only and you do not have to reply.
It is important that you carefully read any notice you receive and respond within the time quoted in the notice. The notice will contain notes explaining the courses of action open to you.
Further information on specific types of notice is available in:
- Public Guide 23A (CO) – Applications by a creditor for a restriction to protect a charging order made by a court
- Public Guide 23B (HSS) – Application by a local authority for a restriction to protect a statutory charge arising under the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983
- Public Guide 23C – Applications by the Legal Services Commission for a restriction to protect a statutory charge arising under the Legal Services Act 1988 or the Access to Justice Act 1999
- Public Guide 23D (TIB) – Applications by a trustee in bankruptcy for a restriction to protect a bankruptcy order made against one of joint proprietors.
Notices can be served in circumstances not covered by the above guides.
