Land Registry Practice Guide Update - Unravelling the Information Minefield
Conveyancers are all too familiar with having to spend non-billable time responding to Land Registry requisitions.
In recent times, there have been numerous changes to Land Registry procedures (which have resulted in several important revisions to their practice guides).
Trying to sift through this minefield of information is an arduous task.
This virtual classroom seminar has been designed to bring you up to date with major practical insights and implications arising from the latest changes announced by HMLR.
