Our digital AP1 solution

Our digital AP1 solution, eDRS

With around 1.5 million property transactions completing in England and Wales every year, one of the most vital conveyancing tasks to be fulfilled is post-completion documentation filing with HM Land Registry (HMLR).

The way in which conveyancers do this has changed, with the paper AP1 form phased out and submissions filed via the electronic Document Registration System (eDRS) from the end of November 2022.

This move towards a seamless, paperless Digital Registration Service will undoubtedly accelerate processes and help eradicate errors and delays in the long term. But in the short term, property lawyers must get prepared to adapt to this new system.

How can Ochresoft help?

Ochresoft now offers eDRS submissions as an add-on module within its Purchase, New Build Purchase, and Remortgage workflows, enabling fast and seamless execution of post-completion admin, with minimal data entry.

Conveyancers and post-completion professionals can benefit from the following:

  • Stay compliant – and on time: eDRS with Ochresoft makes transitioning to online eDRS submissions from the November 2022 deadline fast and easy.
  • Part of the workflows you trust: eDRS submissions are rolling out as part of Ochresoft’s trusted and intuitive case management workflows – no new skills to learn or systems to install.
  • Seamless transactions: Enables full team visibility, making it easy for post-completion professionals to pick up new cases and complete the registration process.
  • Fewer requisitions: Pre-populated data ensures consistently high-quality submissions and reduces HMLR requisitions.
  • Smart integration: Prepared using the data collected throughout the transaction, Ochresoft pulls in pre-populated data and case documents to eDRS, to reduce double-keying and increase accuracy.
