They also do https://propertyalert.landregistry.gov.uk/ which is similar.

Property Alert is an award winning free property monitoring service aimed at anyone who feels a registered property could be at risk from fraud.

Once you have signed up to the service, you will receive email alerts when certain activity occurs on your monitored properties, allowing you to take action if necessary.

It might also be handy to see if developers are eyeing you up...

Lol.... Is that not too late..... AFTER its sold, money transferred and long gone!

Not that this will apply to most people, but I live in a flat and like most address-based systems it doesn't deal well with those. I get alerts regularly (on average at least monthly) for "X House" where I live, but it could be related to any of the 20+ flats within "X House", so obviously I still wouldn't know if there was fraud related to my property without spending time digging deeper.

All sorted now - I'm now able to register my property. If anyone else was having problems it's worth trying again now.

Well I cant say about the normal searches as I put it through auction and was it gone within 2hrs of 1st viewing great offer taken. So only the transfer shown for me but it works.

Been a while since I sold a property, but I remember back in the day the money was "held" for a week after the sale (sold 3 properties years ago and all 3 were subject to hold). Not sure if this still happens?

Needs to be edited to says that it isn't for properties in Scotland.

Properties in Scotland are registered in the Land Register of Scotland with a government organisation called the Registers of Scotland.

This doesn't happen anymore. Once we receive the monies for a sale it's transferred straight to the client on the day of completion or up the chain if the clients are buying on.

The Land Registry would only be able to notify you once the buyer's solicitor submits the transfer (TR1). Registration can take a couple of days, weeks even months so you would be notified before any change to your title had occurred, giving you sufficient time to call the Land Registry to report the fraud.

I think you mean a search called an Official Search or an OS1. The OS1 won't reveal the amount of the charge, this information isn't inputted into the Land Registry website.

Thanks OP
Does anyone know,
How do I change my Contact address?
How do I change the Contact address I entered at the time of registering. When I log in I can see how to change the password, and I have read on this F&Q I can't change a registered email address. I just want to change my contact address not email. Is the response the same I will have to create a new account with new contact address.

If I can't change the current contact details and it remains in the database, and I register with new contact address does it mean any updates will be sent to the all registered contact addresses. Or can I delete the 1st or any accounts not needed to remain in the database.

I have emailed them and am awaiting their response as well...
***UPDATE****
OK Just had a response from the team hope it helps some one

Good afternoon,
Thank you for your enquiry.
As property alert is an online service, we would never contact you by post using the contact address that you provided therefore it is unecessary to update the address. The address details are only taken for audit purposes.
Kind regards,
Eileen Morrison

Does anyone know why the same flat would be on the register three times? (Once as a freehold and twice as a leasehold). It's a new build flat bought from new.
