Registration of title

Registration of title

154.—(1) Where the landlord’s title to the qualifying dwelling-house is not registered, section 123 of the Land Registration Act 1925[1925 c. 21.] (compulsory registration of title) applies in relation to—

(a)the conveyance of the freehold or the grant of a lease in pursuance of this Part,

whether or not the qualifying dwelling-house is in an area in which an Order in Council under section 120 of that Act is for the time being in force (areas of compulsory registration) and, in the case of a lease, whether or not the lease is granted for a term of more than 21 years.

(2) Where the landlord’s title to the qualifying dwelling-house is not registered, the landlord shall give the qualifying person a certificate stating that the landlord is entitled to convey the freehold or make the grant subject only to such incumbrances, rights and interests as are stated in the conveyance or grant or summarised in the certificate.

(3) Where the landlord’s interest in the qualifying dwelling-house is a lease, the certificate under subsection (2) shall also state particulars of that lease and, with respect to each superior title—

(a)where it is registered, the title number;

(b)where it is not registered, whether it was investigated in the usual way on the grant of the landlord’s lease.

(4) A certificate under subsection (2) shall be—

(a)in a form approved by the Chief Land Registrar, and

(b)signed by such officer of the landlord or such other person as may be approved by the Chief Land Registrar.

(5) The Chief Land Registrar shall, for the purpose of the registration of title, accept such a certificate as sufficient evidence of the facts stated in it; but if as a result he has to meet a claim against him under the Land Registration Acts 1925[1925 c. 21.] to 1971[1971 c. 54.] the landlord is liable to indemnify him.

(6) Sections 8 and 22 of the Land Registration Act 1925[1925 c. 21.] (application for registration of leasehold land and registration of dispositions of leasehold) apply in relation to a lease granted in pursuance of this Part notwithstanding that it is a lease for a term of which not more than 21 years are unexpired or, as the case may be, a lease granted for a term not exceeding 21 years.

(7) Section 70(1)(k) of the Land Registration Act 1925[1925 c. 21.] (overriding interests) shall not apply to a lease granted in pursuance of this Part.
