The Event

Land registration underpins title to land. The system, however, is not perfect. Mistakes can be made, while the potential for fraud has been increasingly exploited. At the same time, practitioners are aware that it is now increasingly common for there to be serious delays in the registration of transfers or new titles, causing dilemmas and problems. In this in-person seminar, Kerry Bretherton KC and David Sawtell, 39 Essex Chambers will look at the issues affecting land registration today.

Topics will include:

  • Alteration and rectification of the Register: where are we now?
  • The ‘Registration Gap’ – issues and solutions; and
  • Case law update.

The seminar will be supported by worked problem questions. It will be followed by a drinks reception in Chambers.
