    RQ Form

    I've signed up to the free property alert service from the Land Registry as a step to protect my buy-to-lets against fraud but I don't know if I should also be sending in a RQ form as well. Does anyone have any experience of this please?

    In case others have not done so here are the details for the property alert service.

    The Property Alert is a FREE service from the Land Registry that’s been set up to help prevent property fraud. Over the last 5 years alone, the Land Registry have prevented over £66 million worth of property fraud transactions, and with the addition of this latest system, this figure is set to rise significantly.



    Do consider it for your property and those in your family.

    Hi Mpppen

    You can register an RQ form for any property so long as you do not live there which is the case with BTLs.
    It is a good idea to do so and as I recollect there is no fee.


      Thanks for the help.

        Have you checked the freehold title and site plan are correct ? Both items can be purchased for £3 each by credit card and downloaded from Land Registry Online ?

        Go to a really good solicitor not some conveyancing bucketshop where your work will be handled by someone less than an expert. I think given that the executors are seized of both the freehold and a fifty year lease they can extend the leasehold interest by simple deed, transferring years to the lease...

        If the leasehold flat has only 50 years unexpired remaining , it should be given a statutory 90 years lease extension before putting on the market for sale or the buyer cannot get a mortgage and seller cannot get the highest sale price.

        The sale is not by a resident landlord, its by the...

        We bought our house in 1998 and at that time there was a public pathway between our garden and the neighbour's which lead from the street to the canal running at the end of the garden. I learnt that when the houses were built in 1980 the plan was to build a bridge across the canal at the end of the...

        Being a public right of way doesn't mean that you don't own it. We are not even necessarily talking about adopted status here. Extinguishing a right of way is not the same as getting adverse possession. (In particular, blocking a public right of way is a criminal offence, whereas fencing off land...

        Imho, as the owner was leaving in the property, and the lease reverted to the freehold there is probably no right of 1st refusal but it is all depends on the price
