Iftikhar - you can make a postal application using form OS3 to confirm who has submitted it and what the application relates to. The application costs £7.
We are currently in correspondence with the applicant so at present it cannot proceed

Hi Adam: Many Thanks. Being a property owner I would expect land registry to inform me when an application is made against my property. There has been no notification to my registered address. Can I request to send me a copy of notification with details of the application , please

Iftimhar - we don’t routinely notify owners but may do once an application has been considered. I appreciate why you might expect us to but there is no requiremen5 to do so. 
At this stage the application has not been fully considered so if we need to notify you then that may yet happen.

We would write/email such a notification to the contact details on the register itself.

If you wish to be notified each time we receive a significant application against the title then you can use our Property Alert service. This notifies you when a significant application is received only. It does not notify you on completion.  https://www.gov.uk/guidance/property-alert 
If you want to update the register re your contact details, such as add an email address, then you can do so  https://www.gov.uk/registering-land-or-property-with-land-registry/update-or-correct-the-register

Dear Adam - Many Thanks
I just wanted to understand as if I will have the right to object to any Rights Notice prior to its enforcement against property title : If Land Registry thinks that the application is worth consideration.

Adam_ Many Thanks
How does the process go for a " considered" application. Notify the owner to defend or object before the Right Notice is enforced or enforce the Right Notice first and then Notify the owner??

Again I must say thank you for your valuable advice!!

Iftikhar - the PG explains all of this for you. But in basic terms IF the property is in a spouse’s sole name and the other spouse registers their rights under the Act then there’s nothing to usually object to. So notification is just that, you are notified IF the notice is registered. 

I would strongly recommend seeking legal advice on what legal rights a spouse has here. It’s a legal challenge that counts. Any registration challenge comes after that. However you may wish to wait to see if the application is successful first

Dear Adam _ Good Morning

Please refer to the footnote at HR1 form, reproduced below:

"Under section 66 of the Land Registration Act 2002 most documents (including this form) kept by the registrar relating to an application to the registrar or referred to in the register are open to public inspection and copying. If you believe a document contains prejudicial information, you may apply for that part of the document to be made exempt using Form EX1, under rule 136of the Land Registration Rules 2003".

By virtue of the above, can I request Land Registry to send me a copy of the application and associated documents. Or if that is not possible, if I can send somebody on my behalf to Land Registry and have a look/copy the application/ associated documents.

My concern is that Land Registry is being mislead. I am referring to Home Rights Notice Application M907CCR, made against 43 Lidstone Close, Woking, GU21 3BG.

Best Regards

Iftikhar

Iftikhar - I note that the application has now been processed and a letter has been issued to you at the contact address provided on the register. I would suggest you wait for receipt of that letter to see what it advises.
If you want to apply for a copy of the application form HR1 then you can do so by post

Iftikhar - I'm afraid not. We will have posted it to the contact details on the register so would not share to an email address for example

Hi Adam: I want to request form HR1 against my property title. The fee for one document is £7 . However I am not sure how many supporting documents were submitted with form HR1. I intend to request the supporting documents as well. Please advise how the supporting documents can be requested.

Iftikhar - the form HR1 is a standalone document so does not include supporting documents

Adam I reckon someone need to prove a relationship with you and the evidence that the property was used as a matrimonial home. I am keen in looking as those documents, as I know land registry has been mislead. Is there any way to request documents submitted as evidence . The application number is M907CCR

Iftikhar - the PG I linked you to and the form HR1 explain what is required from an applicant. 
Whether someone is using the property as a matrimonial home relates to the Family Law Act itself and what that covers re their rights and that of the owning spouse for example.
 
As section 1 of the PG explains the Notice protects the spouse's right to occupy the home. It does not mean they have to use it as such as you may be suggesting.
As such you may wish to follow the guidance provided on the issued notification and in the PG itself and seek legal advice as to what your rights and those of the applicant are here

If you wish to apply for copies of the form HR1 and accompanying correspondence then you can do so using form OC2 and paying the required fees
The documents available with the form HR1 are items of correspondence only with regards completion of the application form and confirmation of the applicant's address. These are dated 
23 Oct 2019, 28 Oct 2019 (x 2), 30 Oct 2019 (x 2), 4 Nov 2019 and 19 Nov 2019

Adam Thanks_ Does Land Registry verify ,in any way, that the claim of being a spouse and claim of the property being matrimonial home is correct ? If yes what verification HM Land Regiatry carries out? Or what evidence Land Registry needs to satisfy itself the claims are correct?

If the answer is none; then how a fraudulent claim can be screened out?

Iftikhar - we verify that the application made has been completed correctly. That is explained in the PG and on the form
We register the Notice of the fact that a spouse has claimed their rights under the wider Law. We don;t confirm or register that those rights are legal or exist. Your Qs are for a legal adviser 
I'm assuming you have not read the notice you received, the form HR1 or the PG I linked you to which all explain this in more detail.
If you believe that the applicant has no rights over the property then that is a matter of law and for the courts to decide upon. 
Please read the guidance and seek legal advice. The fact that a Notice has been registered means that the applicant is putting others on notice that they have a right to occupy the property under the specific law.
