The Land Registry is consulting on two new events which would trigger the first registration of land which is currently unregistered. They are:

  • The appointment of a new trustee of unregistered land held in trust; and
  • The partitioning of unregistered held in trust amongst the beneficiaries of the trust.

The consultation closes on 29 February 2008. A copy of the consultation can be found here.

Things to consider

Discounts on Land Registry fees are available for the voluntary registration of unregistered land. Registration can also provide protection against the acquisition of title by squatters.
