In general, the issuing of extracts from the Register of Deeds is not time critical.

However, if any urgent extracts are required then the original writ(s) should arrive with the keeper no later than 18 December.

If the need arises for urgent extracts of new recordings after that date please contact us on cajr@ros.gov.uk.
