Reminder: Electronic payment of Land Registry fees

The Property Registration Authority is in the process of phasing out the usage of cheques as a means of payment of Land Registry fees. A facility is in place via landdirect to allow solicitors to pay for Land Registry applications online by means of direct debit, credit/debit card or from a landdirect account balance.
