ETSOS announces end to Land Registry admin fees

9 June 2014


Conveyancing search specialist ETSOS has become the first mainstream search supplier to remove all administration fees from Land Registry products.

Suppliers have traditionally added a small margin to products ordered from the Land Registry but ETSOS has now scrapped its 75p charge with immediate effect.

Comments Managing Director Phil Natusch, “Although it’s always been a modest uplift and less than our competitors, we have noticed that for some users it has been enough for them to prefer buying direct from the Land Registry. Our core proposition has always been about making the lives of conveyancers easier – by being able to get everything they need from a single platform – and yet here was a policy that was driving them outside of this platform and giving them more to do. That’s not what we want so users can now buy Land registry products on the ETSOS platform for exactly the same price as if they went direct.”

The suite of products available includes residential and commercial conveyancing searches, land registry searches, title insurance, EPCs, AML checks, JET and Lawyer Checker.

How best to achieve independent regulation under the Legal Services Act?

Craig Wakeford LSB

Independent regulation gives confidence to consumers, providers, investors and society as a whole that legal services work in the public interest and support the rule of law. The Legal Services Act 2007 does not require all approved regulators to be structurally separate from representative bodies. Instead, the Legal Services Board is required by the Act to produce internal governance rules (IGR) which apply the principle of regulatory independence in legal service regulation. We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
