This guide is aimed at conveyancers and legal advisers to charities and to those acquiring land from charities and you should interpret references to ‘you’ accordingly. HM Land Registry staff will also refer to it.
Section 1 has been updated to clarify that information about charitable incorporated organisations can by found in practice guide 14A. Section 2 has been updated to reflect our current practice relating to the use of copy documents for some applications for first registration.
Section 3.5 has been amended. The Charity Commission now normally makes and issues orders under sections 69 and 90 of the Charities Act 2011 on a monthly basis. Each monthly order will vest land owned by different charities in the Official Custodian for Charities.
