The Law Society’s insert in the 25 March issue highlighted the issue of fraud in relation to money laundering and mortgages.

To my mind it beggars belief that, in the same issue, it is reported that the Land Registry is consulting (again) on electronic signatures and the abolition of paper documents (‘Electronic conveyancing’ (see [2010] Gazette, 25 March, 4)).

A recipe for fraud if ever there was one.
