18Indemnity in respect of loss

This section has no associated Nodiadau Esboniadol

(1)A person who suffers loss as a result of a matter mentioned in subsection (2) is to be indemnified by the Keeper in respect of that loss.

(2)Those matters are—

(a)a mistake in the register made by the Keeper when making up or amending a registration schedule or making consequential amendments in the register, the correction of which would require rectification of the register;

(b)a rectification of the register under section 16(1) to correct such a mistake;

(c)the refusal of the Keeper to make such a rectification;

(d)the loss or destruction of any document while lodged with the Keeper;

(e)a mistake such as is mentioned in paragraph (a) in any certificate of registration or in any information given by the Keeper in writing or in such other manner as may be prescribed by rules made under section 19(1).

(3)But the Keeper is not liable to indemnify a person under subsection (1) in relation to a mistake such as is mentioned in subsection (2)(a) if—

(a)the existence of the mistake was, or ought to have been, known to—

(i)the person seeking indemnity for loss; or

(ii)any person acting as solicitor or other legal adviser of that person,

at the time of registration (construed as including completion of registration under section 9 or 10 and notification under section 21);

(b)the mistake relates to an inaccuracy in the delineation of any boundaries shown in a registration schedule, being an inaccuracy which could not have been rectified by reference to the ordnance map or to such other map as the Keeper, for the purposes of section 11(2)(a), considers appropriate; or

(c)the loss was caused by the fraudulent or careless act or omission of the person seeking indemnity for loss.

(4)No indemnity is payable in relation to a mistake such as is mentioned in subsection (2)(a) until a decision has been made about whether to rectify the register for the purpose of correcting the mistake; and the loss suffered as a result of that mistake is to be determined in the light of that decision.

(5)A person who, as a result of a mistake mentioned in subsection (6)—

(a)takes a step mentioned in subsection (7); and

(b)suffers a loss in so doing,

is to be indemnified by the Commission in respect of that loss.

(6)That mistake is a mistake in the register arising as a consequence of a mistake made by the Commission when forwarding the application for registration under section 7(3)(b) or when submitting (on their own behalf) the application for registration.

(7)Those steps are—

(a)the submitting of a fresh application for registration;

(b)the making of an application for rectification of the register under section 16(3).

(8)Subsection (5) applies whether or not the register is rectified to correct the mistake referred to in that subsection.

(9)In this section, “mistake” has the meaning given by section 16(7).
