Registration of Title

Show Summary Details


The 1925 legislation was enacted in part to encourage the development of the registration of title to land, to which end the basic doctrines of substantive Land Law had to be simplified. Thereafter, the legislation’s ultimate goal has been to make sure that all land titles in England and Wales are registered. Registration of title aims to facilitate the security of land ownership and land transfer. This chapter focuses on the registration of land titles in England and Wales. After providing an overview of the basics of title registration, it discusses the Land Registration Act 2002, registrable interests, registration with an absolute title, third party rights, unregistered interests which override registration, titles that are less than absolute, dealings with registered land, and indemnity as a result of alteration of register.
