“With regard to the Bayard Recreation Ground leases, we are in the process of applying for first registration at the Land Registry which will enable us to produce Land Registry compliant lease plans.  I will let you know when this application is ready to be submitted to the Land Registry.”


I am not sure why it has taken so long for this first step to be taken but I will be monitoring the situation closely.
