(2)The entry of a notice is to be made in relation to the registered estate or charge affected by the interest concerned.
(3)The fact that an interest is the subject of a notice does not necessarily mean that the interest is valid, but does mean that the priority of the interest, if valid, is protected for the purposes of sections 29 and 30.

(a)an interest under—
(i)a trust of land, or

(2)Subject to rules, an application under this section may be for—
(a)an agreed notice, or

(b)the relevant registered proprietor, or a person entitled to be registered as such proprietor, consents to the entry of the notice, or
(c)the registrar is satisfied as to the validity of the applicant’s claim.
(4)In subsection (3), references to the relevant registered proprietor are to the proprietor of the registered estate or charge affected by the interest to which the application relates.

(a)the proprietor of the registered estate or charge to which it relates, and
(b)such other persons as rules may provide.
(2)A unilateral notice must—
(a)indicate that it is such a notice, and
(b)identify who is the beneficiary of the notice.
(3)The person shown in the register as the beneficiary of a unilateral notice, or such other person as rules may provide, may apply to the registrar for the removal of the notice from the register.
(1)A person may apply to the registrar for the cancellation of a unilateral notice if he is—
(a)the registered proprietor of the estate or charge to which the notice relates, or
(b)a person entitled to be registered as the proprietor of that estate or charge.

(3)If the beneficiary of the notice does not exercise his right to object to the application before the end of such period as rules may provide, the registrar must cancel the notice.
(4)In this section—
“beneficiary”, in relation to a unilateral notice, means the person shown in the register as the beneficiary of the notice, or such other person as rules may provide;
“unilateral notice” means a notice entered in the register in pursuance of an application under section 34(2)(b).
(1)If it appears to the registrar that a registered estate is subject to an unregistered interest which—
(a)falls within any of the paragraphs of Schedule 1, and
(b)is not excluded by section 33,
he may enter a notice in the register in respect of the interest.
(2)The registrar must give notice of an entry under this section to such persons as rules may provide.
Where a person is entered in the register as the proprietor of an interest under a disposition falling within section 27(2)(b) to (e), the registrar must also enter a notice in the register in respect of that interest.
