This guide deals with the compulsory and voluntary registration aspects of leasehold estates in land, including those that cannot be registered.

It also deals with how to apply to register and note leases (including when we will automatically note a lease against a registered reversionary title) and with deeds of variation.

It does not deal with leases revealed as disclosable interests; see practice guide 15: overriding interests and their disclosure.

The guide is aimed at conveyancers and you should interpret references to ‘you’ accordingly.
