The reminder states;
"Among others, this affects organisations and individuals such as management companies and residential property agents providing consents to conveyancers to enable the registration of transactions to go ahead.
We updated our practice guide 19 section 3.1.1 to say: “A consent must state it is given to registration of the disposition, rather than simply consenting to the disposition itself.”
When requesting consent from the party named in the restriction, conveyancers will need to make it clear they require consent to registration. And third parties giving consent must state they give consent to registration.
We gave 12 months’ notice to enable customers to make the necessary changes. From April 2020, applications with incorrectly worded consents will not be accepted."
