Effect of registration
Section 9: Registration with unit-holders
56.Section 9 provides that, where an application to register under section 2 has
been successful and is accompanied by a request that section 9 should apply, the Registrar will register the commonhold association as owner of the common parts without need for an application, and the commonhold community statement will come into effect. This has the effect of ensuring that, where there are already people living in the development which is converting to commonhold and the Registrar has the necessary consents, the commonhold is set up at once and there is no transitional period.
