Last week we received a requisition complaining that, on a mortgage deed where I had witnessed each of the borrowers’ signatures by signing my own name by each borrower’s signature, I had printed beside that my rubber stamp with my name and the firm’s name and address printed on it (though very clearly visible and legible).

The requisition required me to print my name in handwriting.

Today, as I multi-task by eating my lunch and reading the Gazette, I see that Andrew Robinson of the Land Registry says: ‘Every time you receive a requisition, it costs you or your firm the time to respond to it’. 

Who’s wasting whose time?
