They are therefore not accessible when viewing legislation as at a specific point in time.

F4N.I.Procedure for corrections consequent upon errors in vesting orders

F4(prosp. subst. by 2005 c. 4)

Non-textual amendments applied to the whole Legislation can be found in the Introduction

4Subject to paragraph 5, where an error is found to have been made in a vesting order, or in any map of land vested by a vesting order, and such error either—

(a)has, on first registration, been incorporated in any entry in[F1 the register]; or

(b)has been discovered before first registration has been completed;

the court may, in accordance with and subject to section 69(1) and (3), treat the error as if it were an error occurring in the registration of the ownership of the land and may direct such consequential rectification of[F1 the register] as appears to the court to be necessary.

5Notwithstanding anything contained in section 69(2), where the error in a vesting order consists only of a misdescription of the person in whom land was vested by the order, the Registrar may, on the application of the registered owner, or of any person applying to be registered as owner, of the land and upon proof of such misdescription, treat the vesting order as if it had correctly described the person in whom land was vested by the order and may note the correct description of that person on any entry in the[F2 title register] relating to any land vested by the vesting order.

6Nothing in paragraphs 4 and 5 shall confer upon any person a right to make any claim[F3 for compensation] which he would not have been entitled to make if those paragraphs had not been enacted.
