Customers have asked that we review the wording of the certification statements given when submitting electronic Document Registration Service (e-DRS) applications. We have listened to customer feedback and on 16 December 2013 the certification statements for customers who use e-DRS through the HM Land Registry portal will change to the following:

  • I/We certify this attachment is a true copy of the original document;
  • I/We certify this attachment is a true copy of a document which is certified by a conveyancer to be a true copy of the original; and
  • This attachment is an uncertified copy.


The revised certification statements can be selected or changed by use of a radio button, or option button, rather than the previous drop-down menu. The first statement will be pre-selected as a default setting.

To login to your account, go to the HM Land Registry portal or read about the various services the portal offers.
