HM Land Registry have announced that from November 2022 they will cease to accept scanned or PDF copies of AP1s, and instead are mandating all register applications to be digitally submitted. This is a significant and important change for the industry and supports InfoTrack’s vision to lead the digital development of conveyancing. InfoTrack was an early adopter of HM Land Registry’s Business Gateway and digital submissions, with the first digital AP1 submission being processed by us back in 2016. Since then, we have successfully processed over 550,000 digital AP1 submissions, as well as the first AP1 submission with electronically signed witnessed deeds. With an estimated 80% of AP1s still being submitted manually, many conveyancers must now prepare for the move to digital AP1s and familiarise themselves with the processes required for the change.
