Response

The Council applies to register numerous types of information at HM land Registry, including registering all types of land transactions, charges over land, charging orders, leases and grants of easement/deeds of rectifcation. Furthermore, the Council seeks a variety of information services that HM Land Registry offer, including requests for office copy entries, official searches with/without priority, searches of the Index Map, submitting DS1/DS2s, applications to register restrictions/notices and Land Charges searches. This list is not exhaustive.

There are various departments and many officers involved in these processes, including the legal department, the housing department, the planning department and the revenue and benefits department. The Council utilises the HMLR Portal and there are numerous officers who supervise the use of its staff using the portal, namely Laurie Gibbins in Legal Services, Mandy Major in Revenue and Benefits, Carol Vint in Planning and Linda Philips in Housing.

The Council submits a variety of information to HMLR when it is legally required to do so, or if it desires to register its interest in/over land on the HM Land Registry data bases.
