    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.

        Hi All,

        This is my first post :-)
        I found this forum whilst I was googling about freehold insurance and thought I would ask you guys for opinions about my purchase.

        So I'm in the process of buying a detached house (built 1911) consisting 2 flats with separate entrances...

        Thanks leaseholder64 that is very useful information.

        So a couple of hypothetical situations: and I will make LOTS of assumptions that are most probably wrong.

        Lets say that I have perfectly good freeholder buildings insurance.

        The ground floor flat takes down...

        The lease is only void if:

        1) The freeholder gets a ruling from the FTT that there has been a breach; abd

        2) The freeholder then issues a notice of forfeiture; and

        3) The leaseholder either doesn't seek relief from the courts or the courts don't grant relief....

        The interior is listed even though it isn't mentioned: "While some entries will make no reference to the interior, unless it is expressly excluded, it is covered by the listing and may be significant." https://historicengland.org.uk/listi...-list-entries/

        I’m in a process of buying a flat inside a grade 2 listed building. The process was going fine until I noticed the floor plan in the lease doesn’t match up with the current floor plan in real life. I can see that there has been structural changes made the flat in the past. Our solicitor has questioned...

        The description online mentions nothing about the interiors inside the building, does it means the inside of the building is not protected and there’s no consent needed to do internal changes in future? We also want to update the floor plan in the lease agreement. Do we do this after the purchase...

        You can search the listing records to find out which parts of the building are listed. As said it may only be the outside appearance or could be some particular features both externally and internally. The listing will describe what they have listed.

        Dear John

        In brief, the clause requires the freeholder to take out buildings insurance with a reputable insurer for the full reinstatement value that must meet the requirements of the Council of Mortgage Lenders. It provides latitude for the freeholder to insure against any other risk in...
