Course-focused and comprehensive, the Textbook on Land Law provides an accessible overview of one key area on the law curriculum. The Land Registration Act 1925, which governed the system of registered land, was repealed and replaced by the Land Registration Act 2002, which in the main came into force on 13 October 2003. This chapter focuses on the terms of the 2002 Act and the rules made under it (Land Registration Rules 2003). The discussions cover what can be registered; registering title for the first time; dealings with a registered estate; buying a house with registered title; interests protected by entries on the register; interests that override a registered disposition; interests of persons in actual occupation; discovering encumbrances; alteration of the register and indemnity; transfer and completion by registration; the priority of competing equitable interests; and electronic conveyancing.
