Land Registration Act 2002

Section 119: Power to deregister manors

191.At present a manor - that is the lordship of the manor - is registrable with its own title. Manors are wholly incorporeal, and impose no burden on the land within the manor. The registration of manors gives rise to many practical difficulties in the Land Registry. The Act therefore changes the law by making it no longer possible to register a manor. This is achieved by omitting manors from the interests in land which may or must be registered. To enable the register to be cleared of manors already registered, this section provides that if a proprietor of a registered manor applies, the registrar may remove the title to the manor from the register.
