To assist clients with progression of their conveyancing transaction, the following guidance has been given from HMLR:-
HMLR will accept deeds that have been signed using the ‘Mercury’ signing method.
The aim is to reduce problems with post, paper and scanning.
You’ll be able to email the transfer and other deeds to your client, who then only needs to print, sign and witness the signature page and take a photo of that or scan it before returning it to you by email for completion.
Please speak to the fee earner in charge with your case for further details and ensure your email address is up to date.
