Since 1862, HM Land Registry has protected and guaranteed people’s land and property rights by keeping and maintaining the Land Register for England and Wales. HM Land Registry plays an important role in the property market, underpinning property ownership worth over £7 trillion across England and Wales. Our ambition is to become the world’s leading land registry for speed, simplicity and an open approach to data.

As an Assistant Land Registrar working within the Land Registration Lawyer Group, you will play a vital role in the delivery of first-class legal services to support HM Land Registry’s ambition.

Job description

Working as part of a national team of lawyers you will manage a varied caseload of complex and sensitive cases, complaints and financial claims under the land registration legislation and help deliver the wider Legal and Assurance Directorate business objectives. You will support HM Land Registry’s aim to maintain trust and confidence in the property market by providing legal and technical advice, on matters such as land ownership, rights, interests affecting land and disputed applications, to our operational delivery teams based in 14 offices throughout England and Wales.


You must be qualified to practise as a Solicitor or Barrister in England and Wales or be a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from Licensed Conveyancers who are not also qualified Solicitors, Barristers or Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. There are no minimum post-qualification experience requirements but knowledge of land registration, land law and conveyancing is desirable.

We are looking for applicants with legal professional skills who can exercise sound judgement to reach effective decisions quickly and who will play a vital part in delivering the first-class legal services HM Land Registry needs as we transform into a digital organisation.

HM Land Registry is a vibrant place to work with sport and social events and a variety of clubs. We offer flexible working to help you achieve a work-life balance that works for you and us.

You could be protecting property ownership by making updates to the Land Register, or working in our digital, data and technology teams, designing the property market of the future.

We’re committed to fairness and equality for all, so you feel valued for who you are and what you do. Diversity fuels our innovation. Our shared values help us work together, to benefit the communities we serve.

Our employee diversity networks support our culture of inclusion and contribute to our diversity action plan. Our current focus is to encourage people from under-represented groups into management and leadership roles, especially people with disabilities, women and ethnic minority colleagues.
