HM Land Registry standard form restrictions on title

The following Property guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • HM Land Registry standard form restrictions on title
  • Permitted amendments to the standard from restrictions
  • Non-standard restrictions

The Land Registration Rules 2003 Rules specify standard forms of restriction at Schedule 4.

HM Land Registry Practice Guide 19 (LRPG 19) confirms that the standard form restrictions are worded in a clear manner so that HM Land Registry, and someone inspecting the register, can determine whether a given application will be caught by its terms and, if so, what action needs to be taken to allow the application to proceed.

Paragraph 3.3.1 of LRPG 19 gives guidance on applying for a standard form restriction.
