About us

What we do

The Land Registration Rule Committee (LRRC) is sponsored by the Land Registry to advise the Lord Chancellor on making land registration rules and specifying service fees for land registration and information services.

Who we are

The LRRC is made up of:

  • either a judge of the Chancery Division of the High Court nominated by the Lord Chief Justice, or a judicial office holder nominated by him after consulting with the Lord Chancellor
  • Chief Land Registrar
  • a nominee from the General Council of the Bar
  • a nominee from the Council of the Law Society
  • a nominee from the Council of Mortgage Lenders
  • a nominee from the Council for Licensed Conveyancers
  • a nominee from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors
  • someone with experience in consumer affairs nominated by the Lord Chancellor

The current members are listed by name on the LRRC membership page

The Lord Chancellor can also nominate a committee member for qualifications or experience that he thinks will be valuable; the power of nomination has not been exercised.

Our responsibilities

We’re responsible for:

  • reviewing drafts of land registration rules and fee orders for the purpose of advising and assisting the Lord Chancellor as to the making of such legislation
  • considering and discussing papers provided by Land Registry officials
