Buying-in


Submission of a buying-in request

The buying-in process is initiated by the requesting party submitting a request directly by e-mail to the Exchange.  For enquiries, please contact Offline Monitoring on +44 (0) 20 7797 1116. 

Member Firms may find this is the most convenient for CREST settled transactions and are required to set up a dedicated e-mail address for receiving notifications of processed requests by the Exchange.  The Exchange should be advised immediately if this e-mail address changes.

The form below can be downloaded and completed electronically and should be e-mailed to buying-in@londonstockexchange.com

Where the transaction was executed on SETS with the central counterparty the requesting party should record LCH01 as the liable party.

The requesting party should submit the request in accordance with the timetables set out in the "Buying-in timetables" page.  The Exchange will then issue the liable party with a “Buying-in Notice” by e-mail in accordance with the applicable timetable.  Prior notice to the liable party by the Exchange will not be given where buying-in is to take place immediately. 

The timetable set out in the "Buying-in timetables" page indicates when the Exchange will make the first attempt to buy in.  If this is unsuccessful then it shows when a second attempt will be made.  It also gives details of when matching and settlement must take place.  Where a security changes timetables, for example, following a transformation as a result of a corporate action, the shortest timetable will be applicable

Where the trade was executed with a central counterparty the “Buying-in Notice” will not identify the ultimate requesting party. 

It is the responsibility of the requesting party to ensure that it provides full information in connection with the buying-in request submitted to the Exchange.  The Exchange is not liable for any errors or omissions in the connection with information it receives.
