The Land Registry offers a number of useful tools for conveyancers, with recent offerings such as the Mapsearch and Application Enquiry services.

However, one of the most helpful and innovative services that they have introduced is the Property Alert system. It is completely free and allows a member of the public to register and receive property alerts for their home or second property.

This is aimed at preventing property fraud. It means that you would receive an e-mail alert which would notify you if anyone attempts to register anything on your title or if any unsuspected activities happen with your property. 

The service offers some peace of mind at no cost. If you haven't signed up for it already, it is well worth doing so!
