Our thanks to reader who forwarded this email to us overnight…

I am now advised that LRD (Land Registry Direct) will in fact remain available, to existing users only, until the end of April. A general email will be issued tomorrow afternoon to all portal customers and those who have submitted their applications to date advising of the decision. I am out of the office until Monday but the email should explain the rationale behind the move.
