HM Land Registry Welsh Language Scheme

This scheme describes how HM Land Registry treats the Welsh and English language on a basis of equality in Wales.



The Welsh Language Act 1993 places a duty on all public sector bodies to treat Welsh and English on an equal basis when providing services to the public in Wales. As a result, HM Land Registry has prepared an HM Land Registry Welsh language scheme under section 21(3) of the act and it received the full endorsement of the Welsh Language Board in March 1998.

The second edition was approved in January 2002, the third in February 2005 and the fourth in March 2010.
