Land Registry Clarifies a ‘wet ink’ signature is always necessary for a Form LL restriction

Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

Land Registry updates Practice Guide 19 to clarify that a ‘wet ink’ signature is always necessary for a certificate required for a Form LL restriction

The Land Registry has amended section 3.1.5 of LR Practice Guide 19 – Notices, restrictions and protection of third party interests (PG19) to clarify that a ‘wet ink’ signature is always necessary for a certificate required for a Form LL restriction, however the certificate is being lodged.

The previous version of PG19 was not completely clear on the approach where a certificate to satisfy a Form LL restriction had been lodged by post.

PG19 has also been updated:

  • To clarify that conveyancers may charge a fee to provide a certificate to comply with a restriction in Form LL.
  • To set out how a certificate or consent required by a restriction should be lodged.
