(1)

Part 13 of the Land Registration Rules 2003 describes the nature and effect of exempt information and edited information documents. Under rule 136(1), a person may apply to the Chief Land Registrar for a document to be designated an exempt information document on the basis that it contains “prejudicial information”. This is defined in rule 131 as information that if disclosed would cause substantial unwarranted damage or distress to someone, or would prejudice the commercial interests of the applicant. Under rule 136(2)(b), an application for designation must be accompanied by a version of the document that excludes the prejudicial information (an edited information document).
