This guide is aimed at conveyancers.

Original documents are required only if your application is a first registration. We will return the originals once the application has been completed. If your application is not a first registration then we will need only certified copies of deeds or documents you send to us with Land Registry applications. Once we have made a scanned copy of the documents you send to us, they will be destroyed. This applies to both originals and certified copies.

We only provide factual information and impartial advice about our procedures. Read more about the advice we give.
