If you have submitted an application to register the grant or acquisition of an easement you may have overpaid us. You may be eligible to claim a refund if your application was submitted since 1 April 2004 and related to three or more title numbers.

Since 1 April 2004 you should have been charged under Article 12 of the Fee Order. Under this Article, there is a single fee for the registration of the grant or acquisition of an easement irrespective of the number of titles affected by the application.

You may have paid an additional fee per title if your application affected more than three titles and were charged under the provisions of Schedule 3, Part 1, paragraph 1 of the Fee Order.

In most cases there will be no difference in fee, but if the application affected the grant or acquisition of an easement relating to more than three titles, it is possible you may have overpaid.

Applications for the entry of an agreed or unilateral notice regarding an easement are not affected.

If you believe you are entitled to a refund, please email easementrefunds@landregistry.gov.uk giving details of your application.
