Land Registry launches Property Alert service
     The Land Registry (LR) today (January 28) announced that with immediate effect, the e-Alert service for property owners has been renamed as Property Alert, with enhanced services.

     A spokesman for the LR said the Property Alert service is a smart tool which gives property owners an easy way to remain vigilant of their properties. During the subscription period, subscribers will receive notifications by email from the LR when instruments affecting their properties have been lodged for registration, as well as when the instruments have been registered. The Property Alert service helps property owners detect unexpected or suspicious instruments delivered for registration against their properties early to enable them to take prompt follow-up actions and/or seek legal advice.

     In addition to the existing two-year subscription period of $250, the LR has introduced a new one-off subscription option at $580, which remains valid until a change of property ownership. This subscription option will obviate the need for property owners to renew subscription. Apart from submitting applications in person at the LR offices, from now on property owners may also send them in by post. These service enhancements give assistance to property owners, particularly those staying outside Hong Kong for extended periods of time.

     Members of the public who wish to subscribe to the Property Alert service can download the application form from the LR's website (www.landreg.gov.hk) or obtain the application form at following LR's offices. The completed form should be mailed or submitted to any one of the offices.

* The LR's Customer Centre (19/F, Queensway Government Offices, 66 Queensway, Hong Kong)
* Tai Po Search Office (4/F, Tai Po Complex, 8 Heung Sze Wui Street, Tai Po)
