7. Should the sale and purchase agreement for the property be registered at the Land Registry? How much is the registration fee?
The agreement must be registered at the Land Registry. This protects your interests as it provides an official record that you are buying the flat and gives notice of this purchase to everyone. Again, the purchaser's solicitor will handle the registration procedures.
The current registration fee for a property sale and purchase agreement is $210 . For more details about document registration, please visit the Land Registry's website.
