LPE1, LPE2 and FME1 property forms updated

We’ve worked with 13 other trade and representative bodies to update the LPE1, LPE2 and FME1 forms. Find out what this means for you.

The updated forms include process efficiency improvements and additional questions.

All three forms now have extra fields for:

  • the unique property reference number (UPRN)
  • asking administrators whether they can accept service of notice by email
  • asking administrators whether they can receive payments via the banking system

LPE1 (Leasehold property enquiries) form

The third version of the LPE1 form contains additional questions and amendments.

It asks whether:

  • there are restrictions on keeping pets or parking
  • a fire safety or external fire wall assessment has been carried out
  • urgent works are needed following a fire safety assessment

LPE2 (Consumer summary) form

The third version of the LPE2 form now:

  • sets out the costs for the certificate of compliance
  • alerts buyers of new properties on newly built developments that maintenance costs may increase substantially once the site is complete

FME1 (Freehold management enquiries) form

The second version of the FME1 form contains additional questions, including on:

  • who deals with the deed of covenant
  • contributions to the service charge
  • access to insurance

What this means for conveyancers

We encourage members to start using the updated forms from 11 January.

Both versions of each form will be available from 22 November 2021 to 11 January 2022.
