This chapter discusses the registration of land titles. It covers the legislative framework, the register, Crown land, the first registration of the title, registrable dispositions, and alteration of the register. Land registration is a national system, first introduced in 1925 and now regulated by the Land Registration Act 2002. Different provisions of the Act apply to first registration of land and to registrable dispositions. A person registered as the first proprietor of the land owns the legal estate, even if the person transferring the land to him or her did not have power to do so. Once land is registered, any dealing with it will be subject to registration provisions. Such dealings may be registrable dispositions, registrable by notice or restriction, or interests that override registered dispositions.
