    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.

    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.

    by seagull
    My daughter's flat sale has fallen through after the new freeholder sent his fee requirements to the prospective buyer's solicitor. The lease requires notice fees of £10 plus vat for assignment and mortgage. The freeholder says he requires £250 for each plus another £250 for a deed of covenant which...

    I would start with solicitor's letter to the freeholder to point out couple of lines in the lease and then you have incurred the cost of loosing a sale due to the uneasonably high fees.

    However I would leave it at that - as going to FTT would be a red flag for prospective buyers.

  • Selling of freehold, shareholder refusal
    by debzb
    My husband had an offer on his flat back in April 2019, he owns 25% of the freehold and 100% of the leasehold on his individual flat. Unfortunately, one of the owners died so he had to wait for the family to get probate. In the meantime the other 3 freehold owners signed ID1 and TR1 forms and a deed...

    Abuse by a freeholder (or a majority lessee) to prevent lease sales at market price is a key mode of fraud in the freehold sector. Often the freeholder will then buy price-depressed properties (where they themselves have caused that price depression). A lot of things that sould be completely illegal...

    Thanks, LIP,

    I may agree with you if developers are well known, creditworthy and ready to provide answers to basic due diligence questions.

    There is also the unknown risks one could be exposed to which are endless.

    I'm actually actively thinking of selling the...

    I and the other leaseholders have been approached by an investor/ developer to arrange to buy the freehold of the block from the council on behalf of the leaseholders, pay legal fees,...

  • Original Lease Unavailable
    by wolvaughan
    I’m currently selling a shared ownership property, the buyer is purchasing the whole flat and I’ll be staircasing to 100% on the day of sale.

    The Buyer wants an original copy of my lease, nobody has one but the Land Registry does have a copy with a red lined title plan.

    What was dematerialised was the register. The register, both before and after dematerialisation, is the title to the property. The original documents cannot, and never could, be used to prove title, but that does not mean they cannot be produced in evidence in a case which does not involve proving title....

    Provided your name is on the title register has an owner (registered proprietor) any sale of the property would need your involvement.

    The property belongs to you (in part) and you need to sign any papers transferring the property. Any solicitor buying or selling such property, would...

    If a sibling was to sell a property and my names was on the deeds, can they sell it without me knowing?
    or would the solicitor pick up on this and advise them another person is on the deeds?
