Section 47: Effect of death or dissolution

132.Subsection (1) provides that an application falls to be rejected if the applicant dies (or if a legal person such as a company is dissolved) before the application date under section 36, but can be accepted if the applicant dies or is dissolved while the Keeper’s decision as to whether to accept or reject the application is pending.

133.Subsection (2) clarifies that if the granter of a deed dies or is dissolved after delivering the deed to the grantee, an application to register such a deed will not be incompetent for this reason.
