(This note is not part of the Rules)
These Rules, which come into force on 16th May 1994, substitute a new form of transfer of freehold land (whole) for Form 19 in the Schedule to the Land Registration Rules 1925. By virtue of the Foreign Companies (Execution of Documents) Regulations 1994 (S.I. 1994/950) (“the Regulations”), sections 36 to 36C of the Companies Act 1985 (c. 6) (company contracts; execution of documents; pre-incorporation contracts, deeds and obligations) were applied to companies incorporated outside Great Britain with the adaptations and modifications set out in the Regulations. The new form substituted by these Rules makes provision for execution of transfers and other dispositions of registered land by companies incorporated outside Great Britain consequent upon the making of the Regulations.
1925 c. 21; section 144(1) was amended by the Administration of Justice Act 1982 (c. 53), Schedule 5, paragraph (d). The reference to the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food was substituted by the Transfer of Functions (Ministry of Food) Order 1955 (S.I. 1955/554).
