70Whenever any registered Proprietor shall be desirous of selling, mortgaging, or settling any registered Land or Estate therein he may obtain from the Registrar a special Land Certificate for that Purpose, which shall contain an exact Description of the Land proposed to be so dealt with taken from the Register of Estates, and shall also state the Nature of the Estate and Interest of such Proprietor therein, and the Particulars of the Incumbrances, if any, affecting the Land described : Such Certificate shall be conclusive Evidence of the Title of the registered Proprietor to the Land as appearing by the Record of Title : No Entry shall be made by the Registrar in the Registry of any Deed, Instrument, Act, or Transaction affecting the Land comprised in such special Certificate, and the Estate of the registered Proprietor described therein, except on the Delivery up of such Certificate, until Fourteen Days have expired from and after the Day of the Date thereof: A Note of such special Certificate shall be entered in the Record of Title and in the Register of Incumbrances, and also on the original Land Certificate.
