    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.

      • Purchasing a Plot of (currently) Unregistered Land - Risks?
        by StuStew
        We wish to purchase a reasonably small plot of land in the vicinity of our property.

        We are in amicable contact with the land owner, who has inherited the land, which in turn forms part of the estate of a now deceased person. The land is currently unregistered (certainly because it has...

        Correct, this is exactly the case. Both landowner and (suspected) adverse posessor have never applied to have any of it registered.

        The landowner does indeed have the original paper deeds. Their solicitors are trying to register the land based upon these paper deeds.

      • Adverse Possession of Land adjoining Leashold Flat
        by Palomino
        In the early 90's my dad bought a ground-floor leasehold flat in a newish development. Altogether there are 4 on the corner plot with communal areas for both blocks to the front and back of the other block. Directly at the back of ours was an additional strip of land which was unaccessible until the...

        OK folks......I'd like some additonal help on this as have had a chat with the new owners who have asked if I can produce any documentation to 'prove' my entitlement to the garden. Of course I don't since the piece of land in question appears on Land Registry as belonging to the freeholder. Could they...

        Hello There,
        I would really truly appreciate any advice either professionally, personally or even morally.
        Myself & my partner are currently in the process of purchasing our first home which happens to be the house next door to my parents.

        it was also stated that your parents bought their property 25 years ago, so that it is registered.
        Schedule 6 of the Land Registration Act 2002 will be the legislation that decides whether the neighbours have been in adverse possession of the property.

        Part of the land now covered...

        The possible scenario you describe sounds plausible. However, I never came across a scenario like it in 30 years of conveyancing. Odd things do though happen in the country where property boundaries are not aways as organised as they are in towns. It is possible that the two properties were once part...

        Hello Again,
        Thank you so much to each and every one of you that have taken your time to reply. It is very much appreciated.
        I have some more information that has just come to light. I've spent the last few days/night trying to find out what I can to understand what has happened.

        Agreed it will be the best way forward, so good luck with getting a 100% agreement with the neighbours.

        Even if some of them agree that may still be an effective way of getting the resurfacing done even it means each of the "volunteers" will have to pay slightly more than if everyone...

        Hi, we have just inherited a house, and within the title deeds it states:

        "The land has the benefit of a right of way over the passageway leading from the back into XXX Road subject to the payment of a due proportion of the expense of maintenance and repair."
