This is an additional preventative measure to updating your property details that will deter fraudsters from dealing with your property when you are not living in it, and is used where you think there is a real risk of fraud.
The Land Registry will allow you to register a Restriction against your property, which will prevent it being sold without a certificate signed by a solicitor or conveyancer.
