Does HM Land Registry have your up to date address noted against your home and any other property you own? If not then HM Land Registry may process applications that affect the property you own without you knowing about it. You can update your address details with HM Land Registry yourself or with Hague & Dixon LLP’s help. You will be asked to provide evidence of your identity. HM Land Registry will note up to three addresses for each owner. You may include an email address.
Is your property registered at HM Land Registry? If it is then you should consider protecting it against fraud by creating a Property Alert account with HM Land Registry. You can set up a Property Alert account by following this link: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/property-alert. A Property Alert will make sure HM Land Registry notify you whenever it receives an application in respect of your property. This gives you the chance to ‘blow the whistle’ if the application is not one you are aware of and help HM Land Registry prevent fraud.
