Property Development
 
Property Development Services:

Land Registry provides the following services:
- Property boundary approval
- Property plan approval
- Approval of draft transfers and Leases
- Plot sales - transfers and Leases

Used together, these services ensure any registration problems will be resolved at the earliest possible stage.


What benefits do these services offer ?

Land Registry services are there to help Conveyancing Solicitors and Property Lawyers acting for development companies and Land Registry to reduce costs.  Land Registry do this by simplifying the processes from initial registration of the site, through pre-sales services to plot sales. The documentation required is simple to encourage use.

Although Land Registry have designed the services to complement each other, Conveyancing Solicitors and Property Lawyers can use each service independently.  Conveyancing Solicitors and Property Lawyers can gain most benefit simply by ensuring that they use each of these services as effectively as possible.

Land Registry are always willing to consider any special circumstances that might apply to a particular development and discuss the best way forward.


Land Registry service standards

Land Registry will endeavour to:
- give approval within 5 working days where the matter is straightforward;
- contact the applicant within 5 days where problems arise;
- supply information which will be guaranteed as accurate.


How to get the best out of these services:

This largely depends on the part Conveyancing Solicitors and Property Lawyers play in the development company.
      

Conveyancing Solicitors and Property Lawyers acting as the developer's legal advisers:
This is a pivotal role to play in the liaison between all the other parties. To make all the registration services described in this guide work smoothly and cost effectively; there are three main areas to consider:

First, making the following timely applications:
- for the registration of the developer's Property;
- for the Property boundary approval;
- for the Property Plan approval;
- for the approval of the draft transfers or Leases
- for official copy entries of the developer's title; and
- voluntary registration of any known overriding interests

Second, ensuring that the plans submitted for approval meet the following broad specifications. The plan must:
- show a scale, preferably no less than 1/500, and orientation;
- be based on an accurate land survey;
- show any measurements in metric form;
- show enough detail for the site to be related to the surrounding boundary features;
- clearly define the number the precise extent of each plot. Particular care should be taken when showing garages and parking spaces included with the plots;
- show buildings and any access drives and pathways in their correct positions; and
- indicate those areas that will remain as common parts.

NB: Plans marked 'for identification only' 'Do not scale from this drawing' or any similar phrase are not acceptable to Land Registry. Plans which bear a statement of disclaimer intended to comply with the Property Misdescription Act 1991, are similarly not acceptable.

The third area of activity relates to the purchaser's Conveyancing Solicitors and Property Lawyers.  The Seller's Conveyancing Solicitors and Property Lawyers should:
- provide them with the relevant documents (transfer or Leases) based on the approved drafts and containing copies of the approved plans; and
- inform them immediately of any change to the approved layout plan and seek all necessary agreements for the change, particularly where contacts have already been signed.
