Conveyancing solicitors urged to sign up to web portal

The Land Registry Direct system will be ending on 31 March 2010. The technology platform on which it is rests will cease to be supported, meaning that conveyancing services in Land Registry Direct cannot be developed further. The new home for the Land Registry business e-services is the Land Registry Portal, which uses the most up-to-date online technology to provide conveyancers and the public with enhanced services.

The Law Society, the CLC and the Land Registry are all encouraging conveyancing lawyers to sign up if they haven’t done so already. If conveyancers send in their application forms by 15 February 2010, then they will avoid the risk of losing access to their business e-services. If conveyancing firms require additional services such as Network Access Agreements and Lender Services, these are optional and can be applied for at a later date.
