The Paperless Property Transaction - Is The Industry Ready?

Date: 27 October 2022

Time: 12:30pm

“Secure digital buying and selling of property are targeted as being the norm by 2024-25”

HM Land Registry is on a mission to revolutionise the home-buying process.

In the recently published Strategy 2022+ report, the Land Registry’s ambition is clear - an end-to-end paperless property transaction, powered by instant data access, enabling homes to be bought and sold digitally. 

For both consumers and property professionals, this promises a frictionless, more user-friendly process with significantly increased resilience to fraudulent attacks and money laundering. 

The ambition is bold. As are the timelines being discussed in the report - secure digital buying and selling of property are targeted as being the norm by 2024-25.

Understanding what these changes will mean will allow forward-thinking property professionals to benefit from these changes. It’s essential for the industry to stay ahead of the disruption to avoid being overwhelmed by it. 

We’re delighted to invite you to join us on the 27th of October at 12:30 pm where an online panel of industry experts will explore the implications of this high-velocity digital transformation and provide insights into how you can best prepare.
