The Land Registry has confirmed that since 2006 it has handed over a whopping £26m in compensation to land owners who have fallen foul of property title fraud. Indeed, just last year it handed over compensation of more than £4.5m.

So what is this costly fraud, and how do we protect ourselves against it?

If you’ve received an Annual Declaration form

You should provide the information for in the Annual Declaration as quickly as possible, and definitely no later than 31 July. Your renewal pack will tell you if you have a different deadline.

The earlier you renew, the sooner the Tax Credit Office can make sure:

  • they paid you the correct amount for the last tax year
  • that you are getting the right amount of money for the coming tax year

A tax year runs from 6 April one year to 5 April the next.

If you delay renewing, you could be paid too much tax credits (an ‘overpayment’) that you have to pay back. This could build up the longer you leave it before renewing.
