On foot of the restrictions introduced by the Government on 30 December 2020, the Property Registration Authority (PRA) implemented its Business Continuity Plan Level 5 response for the continued provision of essential services. The PRA is operating a high level of service, with all services remaining available, excluding public counter access. In February 2021, 17,388 Land Registry transactions were registered.

Applications for registration are dealt with in order of priority. However, I am informed that urgent applications will continue to be processed expeditiously upon request, on a case-by-case basis.
