eRegistration

Thank you to our customers who are using our eRegistration services, and welcome to those who have recently signed up. We are delighted to offer the benefits of eRegistration to you and are very pleased to receive all applications created on the system. However, we have noted that some practitioners are not submitting complete documentation to us, which can cause unnecessary delays. You can follow our guide on creating an application on eRegistration, to help you fully complete the application process. If you have any difficulties or require further information, our support team are happy to help; you can contact them at eRegistration@prai.ie.


Registration fee for eCharge reduced to €0

The Property Registration Authority is pleased to announce that with effect from January 1st, 2021, an application to register a charge (mortgage) lodged using the eRegistration system, will be exempt from Land Registry fees, pursuant to S.I. No. 544/2020 - Registration of Deeds and Title Act 2006 (Fees) Order 2020. This fee incentivisation measure is being introduced to promote the use of our eRegistration service and applies to charges of an entire folio property only.

Benefits of eRegistration include the facility to:

  • correspond electronically with the PRA
  • use information directly from the digital Land Register
  • circulate documents in a secure workspace
  • pay fees by variable direct debit
  • lodge better quality applications leading to less application queries/rejections by PRA
  • ensure faster completion of registration
All applications for registration created under eRegistration (‘W’ application numbers) should be lodged in our Waterford office.

Property Alert Service
The Property Alert Service is a free service available to all. Property is usually the most valuable asset people own. It can be sold and mortgaged to raise money and can therefore be an attractive target for fraudsters. The PRA have introduced the Property Alert Service in order to help deter and detect potential property fraud. Read More.
