4. Registration of title  

This chapter examines registration of title, commonly called registered land, another fundamental reform of the 1925 property legislation. The first attempt at universal registration of title to land was the Land Registration Act 1925. This has since been replaced by the Land Registration Act 2002, which is itself the subject of a recent Law Commission report proposing reforms to the current law. Any transfer of land that is not yet registered will trigger registration of title, and thereafter the land will be subject to the law on registration. The government has announced a commitment to comprehensive registration of title by 2030. The chapter deals with the principles of registration; first registration of title; substantive registration; interests protected by notice, restriction, and overriding interests; alteration and rectification of the register; the correction of mistakes in the register and the payment of indemnity or compensation for mistakes. Proposals for reform are also discussed.
