MJR Solicitors Conveyancing Services
However long you’ve owned your property for, a first registration with HM Land Registry can give you plenty of benefits, including ownership certainty and security. If you own any property or land that’s currently unregistered, then our MJR conveyancing solicitors can help you with any first registrations to give you ownership protection.
What is a first registration?
When you own any land or property, a first registration gives you legal proof of ownership, guaranteed by the government, and gives you protection against any fraud or false claims of ownership. It also identifies the legal boundaries of your property or land, making the process of selling, transferring, or giving it away much more straightforward if and whenever you want to do so.
Whether it’s land pr property, it should always be registered with HM Land Registry. This allows you to prove you own it without having to keep copies of titles, deeds, and any associated paperwork. While there are some exemptions, all land or property should be registered for the first time if:
- You’ve bought it, either as a cash purchase or with a mortgage
- You’ve been given it as a present
- You’ve inherited it as a beneficiary in a will
- You’ve acquired it in exchange for another property or piece of land
- You’ve mortgaged or remortgaged it at a later date
Conveyancing services for first registrations
When you make a voluntary first registration on any land or property, our experienced team can help you with all the necessary paperwork, taking care of the full, two-part process on your behalf. This will include:
- The completion of the initial ‘FR1’ application form
- Full collation and organisation of your documents
- The completion of the follow-up ‘DL’ List of Documents form
- Sending your documents to HM Land Registry on your behalf
On its return, our conveyancing team will then review the paperwork, ensuring your documents are accurate and in order, before passing over the property title and deeds to you. This process ensures all land and property is added or transferred to the online HM Land Registry system which you can access at any time.
