Land Registration Act 2002

Section 89: Settlements

144.The Land Registration Act 1925 contains detailed provisions about its application to settlements under the Settled Land Act 1925. Settlements are not very common and after 1996 the creation of new settlements under the Settled Land Act 1925 has not been possible, so, in time, settlements will disappear. For these reasons this section provides for rules to make provision for the Act’s purposes in relation to the application to registered land of the enactments relating to settlements under the Settled Land Act 1925, rather than setting out the provisions in the Act.
